Practice These Principles presents one common step principle for each calendar month, followed by a Big Book or general quotation, a spiritual reflection and a related question for consideration. Alex has published four other books about A.A.: Daily Reprieve—A.A. for Atheists & Agnostics, a daily meditation book on the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous, Design For Living—Daily Meditations on the 12 Steps of A.A. for Atheists & Agnostics, Here Are The Steps We Took—How to Complete the 12 Steps of A.A. in Eight Sessions. and the lighthearted Gods of Our Misunderstanding In A.A.—Not Just for Atheists & Agnostics.
About the author
Alex M. is a retired physician and life-long atheist living in the Bible Belt where he got sober in Alcoholics Anonymous in 2006. Since so many newcomers flee A.A. because of its God-centric focus, Alex believes his responsibility is to share his experience on how recovery can be attained through the A.A. Fellowship, its 12 Step program and the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous whether or not one believes in God. He has published four books about A.A.: Here Are The Steps We Took—How to Complete the 12 Steps of A.A. in Eight Sessions, Gods of Our Misunderstanding In A.A.—Not Just for Atheists & Agnostics, Daily Reprieve—A.A. for Atheists & Agnostics, which is a daily meditation book on the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous, and Design For Living—Daily Meditations on the 12 Steps of A.A. for Atheists & Agnostics, which is on A.A.'s 12 Steps. The international A.A. Grapevine magazine has published a dozen of Alex's submissions, including "God on Every Page" in the October 2016 special edition A.A. Grapevine for Atheist & Agnostic Members, and that article is also included in the 2018 Grapevine book One Big Tent. He has also published in his A.A. Area Newsletter and an article called "A Friend of Jim B." was published in the book Do Tell! Stories by Atheists & Agnostics in A.A. by Roger C. In 2010 he started a program which takes A.A. meetings to alcoholics in his community who are unable to attend their regular meetings due to medical conditions or legal restrictions. An article on this outreach service called "24 Hour Delivery" was published in the A.A. Grapevine in February, 2014. His home group was the first atheist-agnostic A.A. group in his region. Service work remains the foundation of his recovery. He is active in A.A. sponsorship and volunteers for various service committees in his local Intergroup. Alex is an Ivy League college English Major and avid reader, loves Pre-Code Hollywood films, relaxes by gardening and woodturning, and lives with two headstrong rescue cats in a farmhouse built in 1842.
