How long is a while?

If it's only a few months and he doesn't intend to stay forever, that should be fine. You're just helping him back onto his feet.

He should at least help out around the house and carry his own weight as a pseudo family member if he's not able to pay rent. I suggest just having an earnest talk with the guy. Don't kick him out right away, but make it clear where you stand and make it clear to him what situation he is in.

Everyone wants to help their friends but it's not fair for him to take advantage of the kindness of others.

You probably can't without touching a nerve, that is certain. He might be aware of it but keeps it to himself because it builds within him. Or, he might not care at all. Really depends.

If you're a true friend, you lay it all out on the table man, no sugarcoating it. He probably knows it himself but since no one says anything he does he just goes with the flow as nothing is wrong. Sometimes the harsh truth is the only thing that will make people wake up & realize their own faults/mistakes.

Tell him he's not a guest anymore, he's a part of the household which means he has to put in his part in the household. Either have him pay rent or do chores

Be straight forward about it.. Dont let it keep going on till you completely explode. This isnt just about not hurting his feelings.. you gonna do something before you completely hate this person. Just tell him just the way you told us. Not much too it.

Honestly the people in the best position to tell him he's a mooch would be your aunt and uncle. And the best way to inform people they are lazy ass mooches is to stop enabling them.

Tell him straight while drunk and in a happy mood with a slap on the back.
