If these goals have meaning for you and you are interested in how 12-Step recovery might help you work toward them, then you may wish to join us in this exploration, whether you are in AA, in another fellowship, have a religious affiliation, or have no affiliation at all.
This site will introduce you to the book and through a variety of features seek to widen and deepen our understanding and practice of the principles as they relate to our individual, everyday lives.
We hope that you will find the book and the site useful in your journey of recovery. This is a work in progress. We would like to make Practice These Principles a better tool for doing just what the title proposes. Your sharing and suggestions are welcome.
