A GROUP of friends are unwilling to admit that a mate who used to be the life and soul is increasingly avoided since she quit drinking.
Jo Kramer, aged 32, gave up alcohol during the first lockdown and her circle of friends has since found her to be a pious, judgemental, self-righteous braggart.
Friend Grace Wood-Morris said: “She used to be so much fun. We’d go out and order cocktails and do crazy shit like dancing on car roofs and blagging into nightclubs claiming we were influencers.
“But now when she hangs out with us you can see the look of utter boredom in the eyes of whoever she’s cornered to tell about her yoga routine or her Etsy business or whatever else she fills her evenings with.
“Worse still she’s always on about how great it is not drinking. About how good she feels in the mornings, how much better her skin looks, how much money she’s saving, while I’m desperate for another pornstar martini.
“We can’t drop her because she doesn’t drink. We can’t not drink when she’s out because it’s the only thing that makes her bearable. We’re caught in a very, very dull quandary.”
Kramer said: “They think I’m dull? Christ. Last time I was out, Grace told me the exact same slurred story about Cardi B liking her Instagram three f**king times.”
