BOB appears to her twice while she's sober, so you guys are confused.
(pg. 155-156 is two pages of BOB!).
One of these times is especially terrifying.

I don't doubt that Laura found coke useful in dealing with BOB somehow.
Coke and BOB aren't directly related though.   Perhaps Mike Gerard
finds Coke useful in handling BOB too.  (wild speculation there)

There might be something to the food in town too. :)   
(especially the hospital food)

Someone just posted a theory that BOB was in Laura at the train car,
and came out when Laura died to hurt Ronette.  This fails to
take into account the third man.  Either BOB walks to the cabin
in human form, or BOB is inside someone else.
