Hi everyone. I went to a graduation party today where all the teens were 18. It started off innocent and parents were there and it was all good fun. Then once it got later the parents in charge allowed everyone to have a drink as long as they weren’t driving.
I didn’t drink-I am 18 and I know it’s wrong. All of my friends asked me to have a sip and I said no, and they didn’t push it on me. My question is, was it wrong of me to stay at the party for about another hour and a half after drinking was allowed?
I felt bad staying because I felt like I was setting a bad example. My friend took a picture of me where someone else’s beer is sitting in front of me, and I feel like I’ve somehow done something wrong by staying at the party. Is this mortally sinful? I’d appreciate any advice as to how to handle this in the future, as I didn’t want to just get up and run out after beer showed up. I tried to handle it maturely and just relax and pretend like it wasn’t there but I still feel bad.
Any help? Thanks
