I wondered about this, too.  If you only read the diary, you'd picture
Laura as a wired coke fiend!  She even mentions "doing lines" in the bathroom 
during her visits with Johnny Horne!  Plus the mountains that she
snorts with Leo and Bobby...

Also note that when she stops using coke for 19 (?) days, BOB disappears.
When she starts again, she sees BOB crouching in the corner, smiling.  Almost
made BOB sound like a cocaine-psychosis hallucination...
