Tulkinghorn had to blink himself awake this week when contacted by a hypnosis group interested in plying their wares to lawyers. But the words 'cocaine' and 'cannabis' certainly helped focus the mind.
It seems this particular group, persuasively titled Hypnosis Works, has been seeing ever-increasing numbers of City lawyers turning to hypnotherapy for cocaine addiction.

Sorry, but you're going to have to do better than that.
