Access 2007, VBA: Question about listboxes, multiple selections

Hello, I have been working on a database with the help of some of the users of experts exchange and I was hoping I could get some comments about how to change how my form's list boxes are functioning.  I have several list boxes all of which pass their values to a variable nst and then this value is passed onto the [notes] field on my form/table.  The way the list boxes function now works pretty well, but I would like a user to be able to de-select a list choice in the listbox.  That is to say if he or she clicks one of the items it removes it as a selection.  The code for the list boxes right now is as follows:

Private Sub List58_AfterUpdate()

With Me.List58
If .Selected(.ListIndex) = True Then
    If nst = "" Then
        nst = .Column(0, .ListIndex)
        Else
                  If InStr(nst, .Column(0, .ListIndex)) = 0 Then
            nst = nst & ", " & .Column(0, .ListIndex)
        End If

    End If
   
    Else
    If InStr(rst, ",") > 0 Then
        If InStr(nst, .Column(0, .ListIndex)) = 1 Then
            nst = Replace(nst, .Column(0, .ListIndex) & ",", "")
        Else
            nst = Replace(nst, "," & .Column(0, .ListIndex), "")
        End If
        Else
        nst = ""
    End If
End If

End With
Me.[Notes] = nst
End Sub

Does anyone know if it is possible to accomplish what I have requested, and if so how should the above code be modified?

Thanks in advance for any comments,
Bevo

        If InStr(nst, .Column(0, .ListIndex)) = 1 Then
            nst = Replace(nst, .Column(0, .ListIndex) & ", ", "")
        Else
            nst = Replace(nst, ", " & .Column(0, .ListIndex), "")
