I'm scared he is going to change? watch

    I have a really good friend who I have known for 3 years. He has been a great role model for me, helping me get through tough times and just being a great friend. It was his 18th birthday yesterday and he has began to drink alcohol. I know I am beginning to sound like I'm his mother, but it's just something I would never imagine him doing. He's always been the one telling me not to go to these parties (I'm 16) and I understand that he can legally do that now, but I just don't want him to change. Now that he is an adult and I'm still a child, I feel as if there is going to be a difference between us now, and I feel as if he wouldn't want to do the childish things that we used to do together and that we will drift apart Can someone please tell me their thoughts to help me get through this?

    It's up to him if he wants to drink alcohol. He is an adult and he is maturing; things may change. But you just need to keep spending time with him and acting as you always do; if he wants to be friends with you he will be. Just keep putting in effort and he will too. If he doesn't, then it's no big loss anyway.
