My Son Started Writing

We have been on a long journey with my son through his addiction and mental illness.
He has been encouraged to write/journal which he has done on and off. Last year (after hearing David at the Utah Nami conference) he and I set up a blog for him to share his writings. Just yesterday he decided to start posting his poems.
Being the co-dependant mom that I am I went to a few of my online groups and asked them to visit his blog if they had a chance, but not tell him that I sent them.
Well they have commented on his blog and he likes the feedback. Some have told me they will be reading his poems from the bookstore (which I will not tell him!)
I am now worried that the comments will quit and he will spiral downward. I'm damned if I do and damned if I don't.
Suggestions anyone?
