We think Demi should be careful surrounding herself with non-sober people after her struggles — are YOU concerned about her?

Demi Lovato worked so hard to sort out her issues while in treatment, but now she’s worrying fans after being spotted buying beer with friends for her 19th birthday party!

Demi, who turns 19 today, was out celebrating her big day in the early hours of the morning, and was snapped by with an older friend who was purchasing beer.

The night started when her buddies took her bowling at Pinz in the Valley in Studio City, Calif. After bowling wound down at 1:30 A.M., Demi and a buddy went to 7-11 to pick up some Miller Lite and Red Bull. It seems they were planning to get crazy all night long!

We know her birthday is a time to celebrate, but given she is underage and has gone through so much during her time in treatment, we’re very concerned about her hanging out with older, non-sober friends. It’s not a crime, but it’s not exactly the best environment when your friends put temptation right in front of you!

What do you think, HollywoodLifers — was Demi just innocently hanging out with friends or is she headed back down a dark road?
