I was lost, a disaster of a life, I found Garys book through one of his friends Gabe Deems videos.
Without Gary I don't know where I would be now.
I'm now 7 years porn free, and in a fantastic long term relationship.
Even to this day I bring up Garys work to discuss what porn is doing to so many men in a far reaching negative way.
Thank you man, My happiness is due to your work.
Thank you Gary for your work all these years helping many people to see the truth and overcome their fears by understanding and knowledge; thank you because of your intelligence and the manner to approach to the people, helping many of us to achieve our goals and to be better human beings. God bless you forever MASTER!
لقد كان لك تأثير كبير علي شخصيتي و علي تفكيري و بدوري انا لقد اكملت مسيرتك في توعية الناس علي ترك و البعد عن هذا السم القاتل
لترقد في سلام .
I had the hope that I would meet you one day...
Thank you for your contribution for humanity, thank you!!!!
While watching a documentary about pornography use and it's harmful effects, I came across the news that Dr. Gary Wilson had died. I was distraught, it was so unexpected. Interestingly, I was watching this documentary exactly one year after his passing.
I recall watching his Ted talk, around 2016, and how it kickstarted my journey to quit porn for good. At the time I would go on to read his website extensively and read snippets of his book.
Though I've had my ups and downs in this journey of addiction, I can say that Dr. Wilson had an extremely positive impact in my life, and hearing of the news was heartbreaking.
It's probably impossible to put into words how big of a positive influence Gary had in millions of people's lives, particularly young men. He was certainly fighting the noble battle. Rest in Piece Gary Wilson, I wish I could've thanked you in person.
With much admiration,
An internet stranger
I have really struggled with pmo for a Long time not knowing how dangerous it was to my physical and psychosocial health.ever
Since I started following Noah church's platforms who of course has been really inspired by Gary,I've learnt alot about pmo and
I've made it 2yrs pmo free.long live Gary the legend.
I just want to thank you, you saved my life. Rest in Peace.
When I was living the worst part of my life, I found a book that changed my life, that book was YBOP in this book was written all what was taking away my life, I was not alone, I was not lost yet, there was a way to recover my life, Gary changed my life, I had been struggling with porn addiction for years now, I had won a lot, I had changed a lot, still have a lot to learn and change, but the very first tool I had was Gary's work, he gave me a ray of light in the darkest part of my life. So based on his work I started a web with a blog, a YT channel and help spread his words and knowledge to spanish community, and help a lot of men and women, to get their life back as I did with mine thanks to Gary's work.
This man saved my life and free me from my deepest nightmare.
Thank you very much Gary!
I just found out
I want to thanks him for helping hundrends of men to understand the damages of porn
I was able to get away from it and now I AM about to finish My Masters degree in Marine Biotecnología
He was just a great person and I am very greateful for everything he did for all of us
Great leader and example of a man with values and desire to help humanity
His Lost really affected me
He is...was just a profound inspiration. Handsome, knowledgeable and excellent, Gary did tireless work in convincing me and millions around the world about the problems, pitfalls, and traps in porn use.
I believe he is one of the most influential, most well-researched, most active-and-real-advocate-for-true-wellbeing person to ever live.
May you rest in peace. Gary.Wilson.
I know about you & I feel I need your help the most right now but you're not here to do that anymore and that's the saddest thing which could hinder my progress on getting stronger each day and fight with my issues. I will always use your strong energy as a support factor in my growth and hope to see you up there why my time comes :)
I think it's safe to say some people would not be here today if it weren't for your work. God touched your heart and chose you for that mission. I'm amazed at how in 2012 you were already talking about this and doing research on the topic while it took me at least 5 years after that to start suspecting that my ED was probably due to porn use. You were ahead of your time and it wasn't even a problem YOU had. You simply observed it in others. Amazing. RIP Gary Wilson.
I am so sorry to read just today of the passing of Gary Wilson. I offer my sincere condolences to his wife and family for the loss of this great man. I have used Gary's work in my practice as a therapist for many years and his fearless approach to the issue of porn addiction has been an inspiration and a saviour for so many. His work and dedication will last forever and I am so fortunate to have known his work. May you rest in peace Gary.
Thank you Dr Gary , may you rest in peace

Thank you dr gary , we miss you , Am praying and hoping you're in heaven where you deserve to be
Sad to hear the passing of Gary. I have just started on my journey to free myself of addiction and hopefully will continue on the good foundations Gary has given me.
I struggled against porn/masturbation addiction for years. I had always grown up believing that it was wrong, and I believed it was immoral. What I didn't know was that there was more than just spiritual damage that came with porn use. If Gary hadn't inspired the spread of the truth about the psychological and physical effects of porn addiction, I may never have known. My fight against this has been taken to a new level, and I am healing in ways that I never have before. Thank you to Gary and all of those that have assisted him in spreading the truth.
Thank you for everything you done for people like us Gary. I was 22 when i discovered i had porn problem in the U.S Navy and if it werent for you and your TED TALK video i would have surely taken my life. God bless you and your Familiy R.I.P and i will continue to share your book with as many people as i can
I will share with you, how Gary Bruce Wilson saved my lifed and changed it for better:
Until 12 years old, my life was very good, fun and joyful. I was very clever. I managed to solve complicated problems in video games and at school.
Everything started going down when I started with Porn, when i was 12 years old. . I was depressed, outsider, loser and bad student. I barely managed finishing school. I used to have panic attacks, strong sexual illusions and intimacy fear... I knew that something is wrong, because deep in my soul i believed, that i am different. Everytime after "session" i felt normal - think that porn is disgusting, women should be loved and respected as persons, not just sex dolls or something similar. This Porn damaged so much my brain, that i had fear, that i am sexual freak and my sexual taste is permanent. My taste turned into porn scenarios and disgusting expression of sexual desires. I went down the spiral so much, that everything was losing importance except
So i decided a to make a research and find solution for myself. I thank everyday to God that i managed to find yourbrainonporn.com and Gary Wilson's book. Than i started the NoFap system.
How i am now:
-Can study for hours
-I am the best at my company
-Starting own business company
-Doing multiple hobbies
-Chasing my dreams
-Everyday is like a new day (full of happiness and enjoyment)
I own everyone of the benefits to Gary Wilson and God.
I will continue to help and support other fallen to Porn brothers and sisters and spread the good work of Gary Wilson!
RIP Gary. My deepest Respect!
What can I say about Gary? I can say that if we were a bit more like him, the world would have a lot less suffering.
Before I got to know his work, I was already suffering the effects of porn addiction but I had no idea porn was causing it. It's so normalized nowadays and nobody had researched, or summarized the research, into it before him. A lot of people already suspected that porn was a public health issue, but it's really hard to defend something based only on intuition.
I can say with 100% certainty that, if not for him, my life would be much worse today.
Rest in peace, hero.
Reboot Nation and scientific research/insight found in Gary Wilson’s book “your Brain on pornography”was exactly what I needed, to give a jumpstart to a new beautiful life, without pornography addiction. Gary’s researched helped me understand I wasn’t alone in this struggle and thanks to Gary and his team, I also understood what was happening Anatomically and physiologically to my brain because of this addiction. Gary Wilson passion gave me hope that I can reboot my brain….and I did!
I would love to send my love and prayers to Gary Wilson family and remind them that his legacy continues by the many lives his impacted and I personally continue to use his passionate research to help others.
