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.
I am so grateful to Gary for his website and book “Your Brain on Porn”. When I was lost with no solutions, and I had given up, it was Gary’s website that transformed my life so profoundly and massively into the person I am today. Thank you so much Gary for being a guiding light to all of us who lost our identity, confidence and passion in life. You have been a beacon of light for us all. I could never have written my book launching in Spring 2022 called “You Are Not Broken” without you. My gratitude is never-ending.
Huge thanks to Gary Wilson, whose contribution will beneficially impact humanity for years to come in the hyper-connected world we're living in.
rest and peace Gary you were legend and you will be forever i read his book months ago and he helped a lot and millions of people will appreciate your work and benefit it
My son and I have watched your videos. So will my other son. God bless.
Thanks Gary, you changed my life. RIP
Gary, muchas gracias por todo lo que has hecho (no sólo por mi, sino por todas las personas a las que has ayudado). Nos has ayudado a entender cómo afecta esta adicción a nuestro cerebreo y cómo nos lleva a tomar cada vez peores decisiones.
El ser conscientes de cómo nos afecta algo es el primer paso para cambiarlo, y eso tú lo conseguiste de una manera espectacular. De nuevo, muchas gracias
Thankyou Gary! All yout conferences served me too much! Your words of wisdom, empathy, and love to all who have this addiction, were definitevly the strength to quit! A enormous hug, wherever you are! Thank you, again!
I would like to offer Gary's family and all those who cared about him my deepest and most sincere condolences.
A few years ago, I was feeling awful due to my ex porn addiction. I did not really know who to talk to. I only knew Gary through his work, and also because I asked him a few weeks earlier if I could translate some of his (wonderful) researches. Nothing else. However, I decided to wrote to Gary.
I was feeling terrible, but Gary had no obligation to answer me. Yet, he responded to me very quickly. Then, Gary gave me some advices with a huge generosity. I could really see that Gary really wanted to help me in a genuine, and a generous way.
Also, when I asked him if I could translate a part of his work about porn addiction, he encouraged me to do so. Thanks to him, people in my country can now understand better why porn is dangerous and how porn addiction works. To be honest, I feel proud of being able to share Gary's amazing work.
Even though Gary and I didn't talk much, we had something that connected us: we both knew porn was dangerous and wanted to help people about it. Sometimes, looking at Gary's work, I was saying to myself: "the world is lucky to have someone so invested in this fight, sharing so much of his work for free.".
Finally, through his work, Gary helped me to understand better porn addiction on a scientific level, and therefore, I think I can help people better.
With caring thoughts,
My life changed a lot after I red his book. I was very lucky finding him. I am sorry about his pass and believe I have a debt with him so I am writing this note to say thank you Gary. Rest in peace.
Gracias. Por dejar un legado me hubiera gustado conorlo, y darle un abrazo es un gran hombre me ha ayuadado mucho en mi vida a pesar que numca lo he visto a el.
Gary saved my life. I developed severe sexual dysfunction as a mid 20 year old due to porn. I had no idea why. I looked everywhere. I denied porn could be the cause at first. After reading Gary’s clear and to the point work I decided to quit porn. I went from dozens of hours per week of watching porn and damaging my entire being to zero. I’m still recovering but the idea of having a loving partner I can share sexual intimacy with is now a possibility. If it weren’t for Gary I don’t believe I could have ever had successful sex or happiness again. I love you Gary. RIP friend.
Thank you, u are my favourite Hero, u deserve heaven for what h have done for new generates🙏
