MY WIFE CHECKS MY DRINKING.
The former Dean of Liverpool, Most Rev Justin Welby, said that although "I very much enjoy a drink", he avoids doing so alone.
In a weekend interview with a national newspaper, he said he was aware "that the children of alcoholics have a much better chance themselves of having a dependency problem.
"So Caroline (his wife) and I have an agreement that she keeps an eye on me, so she'll say if I am going over... but I have rules myself. I don't drink alone, things like that.
"The experience of living with a parent who had a drink problem is... very shaping as to one's views of what human beings are like."
The Most Rev Welby was named as Dr Rowan Williams' successor in November and is due to be enthroned as Archbishop of Canterbury in a service at Canterbury Cathedral on Thursday.
