Yeah, I was surprised that she was in California, since there's noticeably less meth on the east coast, though Florida is supposedly pretty bad. Never been out west myself, but I think the gay/lesbian scene is 'big' there, which may be a factor for her.
There's drugs anywhere you go though. It really is an everyday battle once you've become an addict. Once you're clean for a while there are very easy days to get through, but it's like a cold war that could spark up any moment. Then there will suddenly be random days that cravings and all are back and it really is a struggle.
