Let me say right off the bat that all of my roommates and I are over 21. I live with two of my close friends and then a Korean exchange student. That being said, I am not a fan of alcohol at all. I have never drank anything alcoholic and never plan on doing so. The smell of alcohol actually makes me sick to my stomach and not many smells do that. When I moved into this house with my friends, I just kind of assumed that we wouldn’t have any alcohol in the fridge. I’ve been here for almost a year now, and there hasn’t been any until yesterday. My roommate went out and bought some hard cider, and then today the Korean girl went out and bought some beer. I’m not worried about my two friends getting drunk ever, but I’m not 100% sure about the Korean girl and that is a huge problem in itself. Thinking back, I’ve never really truly expressed my feelings about this to my roommates. I just assumed things which I should have learned by now that I should never do. I know I need to confront them about it soon, but I don’t like conflict at all and I don’t want to come across like I’m super angry which I feel might happen. I just don’t really know what to do.

You and your roommates are all over 21.There is nothing illegal about it and you are all adults and able to make your own decisions. The best advice I have for you is just to express your concerns to your friends and maybe say you’re not comfortable around drunk people. However, if they aren’t getting drunk and you are not involved then there should be no problems.
As for biblical standards, drinking alcohol is not a sin; getting drunk is. If your friends are all Christians and practice the Bible then getting drunk may not be a big issue for them. And plus its only hard cider and beer. In order to get drunk off of those you guys would have to drink about 4 beers or so….and getting drunk like that often is expensive. Im sure there will be no problems!

They may be adults but they are not above the law. Getting drunk is a sin, not drinking alcohol. Respectully tell them your concerns.

I don’t think you should confront them unless they are wildly-drunk and out of control. Just because someone drinks alcohol doesn’t mean they will get drunk. I wouldn’t worry about it 🙂
