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.
I never met this man. But I cant stop my tears.
Gary you changed my life through your research and wisdom. Thank you for everything, rest in peace.
You have given me and many others hope. Thank you for everything and rest in peace. With love from India
I can't believe that this great man has passed away.. Gary rest in peace sir, you have changed the life of milions of young men around the world who thought that life was becoming more and more meaningless. Your work will truly never be forgotten.
This made me very sad.
I don´t believe it, This Man change my life, i can´t quantifier how he impacted my life, i don´t have words to thank all he made for me, how much i sorry. his legacy keep live, R.I.P
Gary played a major role in my liberation from a 16year- compulsive porn use and masturbation. His book and afterwards the articles on his site armed me with the knowledge I have put into winning this battle. I'm eternally grateful.
Gary Wilson changed my life. I cried when I heard about his passage. But he'll live on with me through every other day I celebrate my triumph over this scourge that held me down for almost two decades.
Rest in peace, Gary. You'll be forever remembered.
I remember I was watching random YouTube videos a few months ago and came across an amazing talk about something that was never talked about in the society I used to live in. I quickly scrolled down to find the name Gary Wilson written in the video description.
Gary's compassion while dealing with such a sensitive topic in his TED talk was felt by millions around the world. Months later, I am, mentally, the healthiest I've ever been.
But with a heavy heart, I've come here to wish that may Gary Rest in peace, for the work he started will continue forever and his words will continue to make significant impact in the lives of millions around the world.
I give my sincere condolences to his family and loved ones.
Gary, I’m from Brazil and I wanna say thank you for you speak in Ted Talk. Thats really change my life!
Gary Wilson completely changed my life 100%. I had been addicted to internet porn for over 15 years (since I was 13--more than half my life!) before discovering YBOP (and especially his hour-long presentation on Youtube). Seeing all the research on the harms that pornography causes (many of which I saw in my own life and had no idea were caused by porn!) absolutely blew my mind. What affected me the most was learning that the reason why porn was so infernally hard to quit was because it is an addiction. I always thought the strong cravings etc. I got every time I tried to quit was because I was a pathetic weakling with no self-control, learning that they are just a natural response the brain gives to giving up any addiction honestly brought me to tears.
Gary gave me hope when before I had none, his work and the work of YBOP has affected me for the better more than any other person or organisation I can name. He will be deeply missed by me and I am certain by many other people too.
May Gary’s family find peace through this times.
I am extremely thankful for his life. Cannot put into words what his book has meant to me.
Gary literally changed my life,I learnt a lot about porn addiction and its harm from his book & Ted talk any teenager or even adult man has to read his book and articles he posted on his website.
I will always pray for him whenever I am on this earth.
