I posted this in the Assylum, but they told me it would probably be better too post it here. So here it goes. How do you tell a room mate that you are worried about them? My room mate (Josh) is a realy good friend to me, he is just doing things I think he needs to stop. He has a drinking problem, he use too only drink during the weekends, but now he is drinking everyday of the week. I want to talk to him, but I just do not know how to address it. I do not want him to think I am calling him a alcoholic, but that is basically what he is becoming. Since he started drinking so much, I am guessing his routine is kinda messed up. He stays up all hours of the night slaming cabinets, turning his music up loud and talking to himself. It is bothering me not just because of his health and what the effects are having on him, but how it is also keeping me and my boy-friend up at night. I work early hours at a news station from 4:00 in the morning till 1:00 in the afternoon. I myself need sleep, but I am just so worried about his well being that even if he wasn't drinking so much I would still worrie. He just recently broke up with his g-f (which is my best friend). Ever since the two of them have seperated he has isolated himself from me, his family and everyone that cares about him. The only time I can realy talk to him, or when he will actually say two words too me is when he is drunk. I care alot about my room mate, I just want the best for him. So how do you tell a room mate they need help? If I could only get him to open up and confess what is bothering him, I might actually be able to help him quite the drinking. Any advice guys?
