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.
Gary was the voice of reason within the movement. I think many young guys looked up to him for guidance. He helped many and he will be sorely missed. Rest in peace Gary, thank you for your guidance.
Sadly I've just heard about this and I didn't know I could care about someone I don't even know passing away. But this guy is a hero and will be in my heart until my last breath. He changed my life, he gave my life back, he gave me a purpose to be here where I am today.
I will be always grateful to you my man. Thank you for the bottom of my heart.
You were my light when everything was just darkness.
Heros don't come with capes and you're here to prove this true.
Thank you Thank you Thank you
I used to fap 2-3 times a day in my teens. Due to Bullying at school and not caring parents at home, sticking to porn and fapping was the only high of my day for 7-8 years. And later I got addicted to dating and hook up sites, I am straight, but I got myself registered on Gay dating sites as well. And this is how I managed to ruin my 30s as well. In September 2020, I got to know about the Gary's book and since then I have never seen porn again. And from there started my journey to recovery.
I am intelligent and handsome. Because of PMO, I missed some of the most amazing opportunities in my life and also there missed dating some of the nicest girls. I was always looking forward to satisfy my fetish of what I saw in porn. I missed the good things in life.
Now, I am 32 and making sure to do the things I am supposed to do now. Thanks to Gary Wilson, my life would have never improved without him. I am not able to express in words what I am feeling.
About sex, I am doing great and it was never so good in my 20s. And I am not chasing fantasies, looking forward to build my life with one woman.
Thank you so much Gary Wilson. I am sure he is in heavens and happy to see us all succeed in life.
Thank you Gary for your work in the world.
You helped me understand the negative effects of pornography for me, and more importantly how that was affecting women in the world and also my loved ones.
You will be remembered.
Many thanks and much peace from Australia
I discovered Mr Gary with the TEDx "The great porn experiment" was the first time I heard about porn addiction while I have been suffering from it for several years.
I am eternally grateful to him for all his work, Thank you for everything
Gary, thanks to you I know what has been wrong with me for so long and what I need to do to fix it. Without you I don't know what would have become of me. I believe that you have saved my life. Thank you. Rest in Peace.
I can't believe it, you've lifted the lives of so many. Rest in Peace.
Gary's work may not have been glamorous, but it was important. He reached me as well as many others. My condolences for his loss.
I wanted to send you an email the other day to thank you for all that you have done for me and other porn addicts. I then realized you are no more. This hit me hard, even though I didn’t know you and you’d never even heard of me.
I began my journey to freedom from porn back in 2011-2012. It was thanks to YBOP.
I remember reading your posts on YBR. Somehow comforting. Calm. Kind.
“Thank you for saving my life” are big words, but I mean them - thank you for saving my life.
I’m not religious, but if there is such a thing as karma, you earned a lot of it in this life.
Again - thank you.
I'm very to find out about Gary passing away.
Gary changed my life. I was lost and didn't know where to go for help.
Finding about Gary's work and reading his bock allowed me to get out of the rut I was in.
I'll be forever grateful.
Gary changed my life. I bought his book, Your Brain on Porn, early this year when I decided to learn more about internet porn addiction. Thanks, Gary, for shedding light on this not-so widely discussed critical issue. Your spirit lives on.
Gary Wilson is my true superhero. Thank you so much for everything!
Um homem que ajudou a milhões de pessoas através de seu esforço para ser a voz daqueles que não tinham voz (os viciados em pornô). Talvez o trabalho científico mais importante da ultima década.
Que seu nome seja lembrado enquanto a terra existir!
porn addiction crippled me upside down, internet heroes like gary keep are hopes alive. the same internet that has given gary who understood are problem and used internet for good. it was not his problem but he made heroes that help us, whom we get are inspiration , noah chruch like people. porn destroyed my 4.5 years and took away love of my life. I'll read his book and research paper to give him my condolences. thank you bhaiya.
It is the first time I publish on this blog. The reason is that I have not consumed pornography for exactly 1,000 days today and I can say without fear of exaggeration that both Gary's study and his valuable advice have changed the course of my life. There is no shortage of testimonials of how good it feels when one is aware that he has achieved the reboot. Whether on a physical, mental or emotional level, I notice a radical change in my way of seeing and, above all, of living my own 'me'. I am not able, through my words, to convey the continuous feeling of 'human normality' that is somehow the goal of the Reboot. I would like to express what I live by thanking everyone who helped me throughout this career. Here I mean my friends O.K. and O.B. I tell Gary that I am one of the millions of people he has helped and will continue to help save us from the plague of the 21st century. You live among us individually, when we are aware--deep down within us--of the great evolution we went through, and in our conversations about how society sinks into this omnipresent danger and your genius to rescue us. Gary Wilson's work is a display of love, intellect, courage and perseverance. All of this, for me, amounts to immortality. With these humble lines I tell you, Gary, that you will always be present for us and for generations to come. Thanks very much buddy.
Gary is the hero of my life. His video about how the porn effect on my brain has saved my life. Thank you Gary, I will really miss you. Rest in peace.
