I need advice. And you guys are unbiased so yea I'm comin to you.
Okay so my good friend growing up goes to the same high school as me. We used to be best BEST friends in middle school, but once we got to high school we just kind of drifted apart.
We still are friendly, hang out once in a while, but mostly she hangs with the popular crowd and I don't so much.
But she has started drinking alot. I know we are 18 and its to be expected, but I'm talking A LOT of drinking. She shows up to school drunk, always is out partying, and drinks like more than a normal teen should IMO.
Now, my problem is that I want to tell her parents or someone. I mean I'm worried about her. Her grades are suffering and it seems like all she wants to do is be drunk.
I'm also concerned about the crowd she hangs with. Her boyfriend is 21 and she's 18, which isn't that bad, but I think he's forcing her to grow up too fast.
But I don't want to be a rat. And I don't want to see like a party-pooper.
I know the 'right' answer is to tell someone in authority about it, and 'if I care about her I should tell' but for those of you in high school, you KNOW it's not that easy.
Is this much ado about nothing or do I need to grow a pair and tell someone. What do you think?
Any ideas about how to make sure she is safe and doesn't hurt herself WITHOUT making her hate me or seeming jealous, etc.
