Reduced cigarette and alcohol consumption among directors and employees
A study among managers and employees in the automotive industry in the U.S. found that after three months of regular practice of the Transcendental Meditation Programme, employees had less cigarette and alcohol consumption in comparison to controls in the same work place. Reduced cigarette and alcohol consumption was not the objective of the study, but was noticed as a side effect.Ref.Anxiety, Stress and Coping: An International Journal 6: 245–262, 1993
