May his soul rest in peace.
His book "your brain on porn" was a shocking, yet helpful experience that enhanced my way to recovery from porn addiction.
You touched my life Gary and you'll never be forgotten. Thank you!
I owe this man a big deal. He helped me get my life back
Anyone that ever had the privilege to witness Gary Wilson teach something was a lucky person. I don't know that I've ever met anyone that was so knowledgeable, and so eager to spread that knowledge. Gary had a vast comprehension of anatomy, kinesiology, and massage. He would teach that comprehension with a very blunt delivery style, that was intensely practical. Over his career as a teacher, massage therapist, and author, I can't imagine the amount of people he helped. He left an inedible mark on me and the way I work, and I know of many who feel the same way. His candor, wit, and wry sense of humor will be sorely missed. I don't usually cry when people die, but I cried when Gary died.
Condolences for the family and friends.
I have much respect for Dr. Gary, he changed the life of many people around the world. And his legacy will keeps strong and will help much more.
So,thank you for your lessons Dr. Gary, rest in peace.
Respect from Brazil.
I just read about Gary's passing and felt compelled to express my gratitude to him. Finding his book on pornography addiction really helped me understand what was going on. I've tried for a few years to completely curb this behaviour and it was always Gary's words that motivated me to do continue. He really did an excellent job breaking down a complicated subject into easy-to-read articles that gave me insight. His dedication was noble and he appeared to be someone who got great pleasure out of helping people. Reading the public comments I can see that there are millions of others just like me. Gary helped me in my darkest points in life and I will always be grateful.
Gary, you have done a really remarkable job in helping the people struggling with PMO.
I read your book and now and I am feeling really good now fighting against this shitty addiction. This (PMO) caused my confidence to fall down and not being able to focus and concentrate on the studies as well as worsened the memory power!
Thanks for sharing the ways ijn your book to get into NoFap and completely eradicate this addiction.
I am healing now, just day 2 (I failed multiple times) but now I am supremely confident to leave all this stuff and never ever fail again, and that's why I am writing this comment publicly.
I hope that you went to heaven and are near the God now.
He saved my life and made me a better person. Rest in peace my friend.
Thank you for your gift to beable see through this life's challenges and point at the disinformation that is thrown at us. You and us benefited from you desire and willingness to seek for answers.
Your family has the order correct: Husband, Father, Teacher . . .
I'm a 1956 also, to young to see you go.
Gary Wilson RIP you are my life saver and hero I wouldn't be the man I'm without you putting this information out there. I'm 32 I gained knowledge on this around 24 I slip up from time to time but I get up and move forward. Thankfully my symptoms weren't as bad as some of these people but I really see benefits in many aspects of life not just sexual this is the real deal!
I try to tell other man this and they all look at me like i got 10 heads and I'm crazy. They all think something wrong with me. They believe porn is normal if u don't watch it you are less of a man ! Let them think that one day I'll teach my son this stuff for sure and he better listen.
I'm so grateful that i stumbled upon this back when I was 24 I know this man influenced millions by putting the information out there . Words just cant describe ...
What an incredible message!
Gary, thank you for everything you did. You helped me understand what I was doing to myself and that there was a way out.
Rest in Peace. Your legacy and work will live on forever. Thank you to you and all your friends and family who helped publish your work and website. You're a hero.
He really helped me to quit pornography as I was diagnosed with severe porn addiction. His legacy will always be remembered and His legacy will help many people to come as porn becoming the new internet addiction. RIP hero
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!
