A Pain in the Gut

A Pain in the Gut by Joseph C. Way provides a different and distinct approach to changing unhealthy behaviors. In many cases, unhealthy behavior stems from the mismanagement of emotions and taking the wrong approach to easing pain in the gut, which can become the beginning of addiction or abuse. Every human has addictions, and their severity depends on the pain and what alleviates it. The author discusses how love is the solution to all problems, and only after the removal of pain and learning to manage our emotions can we begin to heal.

Healing is love; we can begin the process with ourselves or receive support from family, friends, and others. Comprising twelve chapters, the book is short, precise, and effective, giving the reader tools to recognize and address unhealthy behaviors. Instead of focusing on theories and general statistics in detail, the book aims at a more practical approach to simplifying how we handle pain and improving how we heal ourselves.

I enjoyed how the author uses models to illustrate the link between unhealthy behaviors and addiction, to make the process simple and easy to understand. The writing flows in a smooth, informative style, which makes it easy to follow, with real-life and hypothetical instances that readers can relate to personally. Joseph C. Way narrates the story from his perspective, which makes it credible, as he has worked forty years as a pastor, therapist, and counselor. He includes numerous examples and anecdotal stories from patients, addicts, and others dealing with various situations.

A Pain in the Gut by Joseph C. Way is a compelling read, and I highly recommend it to anyone struggling with unhealthy behaviors or addictions. It’s a refreshing read that helps individuals tackle challenges in life by offering quick, effective ways to manage the pain in the gut.
