I lost everything to porn during a 20-year addiction. My scholarship, job, marriage, home and ultimately my good health went away. I discovered Gary's work and presentations in '13 and finally saw what I'd become after years of porn rewiring my brain. I became aware and reclaimed my will to live. I owe much of this to Gary Wilson. His work will continue. Thank you.
R.Ip.To our hero,condolecences to his family and loved ones .
My name is Vada Hedgeman and I am a former atheist who became a Christian in his mid-twenties. My faith is the reason I wanted to stop watching porn and I hated the fact that I couldn’t stop. I just couldn’t. However this book ministered to me in a way that nothing else on the topic has. The practical speaking & data in the book ‘Your Brain on Porn’ changed me forever! I am so grateful. I actually did not know that Gary Wilson passed away this year. I was originally reaching out to see if I could interview him on my podcast and in doing research, I learned that he passed away. I just HAD to tell whoever will read this that Gary’s work has blessed me magnificent ways. I will always be grateful for this work and everything you all do.
I pray that you’re encouraged, comforted and don’t get weary in doing well! I know the book isn’t a Christian book and that’s okay. It’s still a book that has been used to make me a better man. God bless you all!!!
Thank you for fighting for the right cause against internet pornography. I watched your TED talk many times and reread your book several times. I'll dearly have you in my prayers.
Grateful to you for helping us accept our flawed selves and helping the world see us and accept us inspite of our struggles
Thank for your great work!
May God bless your soul for the work you did for humanity and saving humans from this poison.
Thank you Mr.Gary Wilson for standing in the truth of our biology and environment.
Thanks to Gary Wilson for discovering through studies on neuroplasticity that it is possible to restore the brain to its natural sensitivity through reboot and thanks to this discovery I am struggling to stop pornography once and for all because I have been addicted to pornography for now. 5 years, I haven't completed this porn abstinence experiment yet but I've achieved abstinence records of 26 days, 48 days and 63 days, feeling more energetic, free time and feeling good about myself. Gary Wilson you were and continue to be a leader in the fight against pornography addiction which is a biological and evolutionary failure due to a disturbance in the brain's reward system, I wish you to rest in peace and that your family, friends, colleagues and the your dog be comforted and comforted for his loss! I am a 23 year old Brazilian who is eagerly awaiting the Brazilian Portuguese version you are writing of Your Brain On Porn!
Your work has helped me and gave me hope. Thank you Dear Scientist
Gary has changed countless people's lives for the better, including my own. I will be forever grateful. His message will hopefully live on. What a great human being.
May he rest in peace.
I never met you but came across your TED talk video. You are at true healer, you gave me knowledge, knowledge is power and i finally found out what was wrong and why I was empty inside. You helped me heal and helped me turn my life around. May you be at peace - thank you from the bottom of my heart. 🙏
You helped me change my life, I'm a new man.
It is strange how a guy from Oregon can have such a great effect on the life of a guy from Greece without ever meeting him.
Garry's research and work have helped me understand many things that were crucial for my future. He has helped me immensely and has changed my life for the better.
I am really sad he is gone
Thank you Gary
Rest in peace
I came across Gary's website when I first joined the nofap reddit community. It changed the way I think about abstinence from porn, and enabled me to quit. I am now married with two children. Gary's work has helped literally millions of people like me to turn their lives around.
I found out about Gary's death when I came back to the site after a relapse. I never knew Gary, but I am in his debt. Thank you, Gary. You have given me the tools I need to fight. I look forward to joining you when my fight is over, hopefully many years from now.
Thank you Gary! I Wish i can do a fraction of the good that you have done. Thank you.
I would like to thank you Gary Wilson for shedding light to people that porn addiction is a serious matter. I know for sure that his website not only helped me, but thousands of teens and adults who are struggling with porn addiction. May you rest in peace Gary🙏🏽
I just heard the news of Gary's passing and my heart was at an unease for a moment.
I can from a Muslim community in Southern California and I used Gary's work in my presentations to parents about the negative effects of pornography on the brain. I think most of us were highly appreciative of Gary not bringing religion into the question of whether pornography is good or bad, moral or immoral, sin or lawful. No Bible or Quran
passages quoted just raw science.
Thank you Gary and you will be missed,
Having only found out about the loss of Gary Wilson today, I am extremely saddened at his passing and my thoughts go out to his family and loved ones.
Without this man and his insights, I can safely say I would not be where I am today. Your work literally changed the course of my life and for that I am eternally grateful. I will continue to share your work and keep your legacy alive.
Thank you for everything.
