How do I let him down easy?

I broke up with my boyfriend on Sunday. We only dated a week, but he says he's so into me and wants another shot. He's a little older than me, he doesn't have a job, and he drinks way too much. I don't want to turn him down AND make him feel like a bad person. So what should I do to turn him down nice enough to where we could still at least be friends?

Thanks for the answers! They helped out great, but now he's telling me he's in love with someone else who he just met, I think he's trying to make me jealous. Which is so childish I don't think I want friendship with him anymore. But thanks again!
