Most people who know Alex know his love for marijuana, as he has once openly said, “I find that smoking pot can be a really great creative agent.”

He, however, is quite against the use of Ecstasy and cocaine. While talking about his use of substances, he also shared how drugs might have helped him "reconnect" with his wife.

He shared how the two were going through a difficult time in their relationship, and in the euphoric effects, the two danced, talked their hearts out, and eventually mended many unhealed wounds.

He said, “We cranked the music and we were dancing, and then we talked for hours about deep personal stuff for what seemed like the first time, even though we’d been married for years,”

The Canadian musician further added, "We were going through a bit of a difficult time in our relationship, and that opened up a lot of doors."

Well, all of it seemed to have perfectly worked as the two have remained intact and together ever since. If anything else, the love seemed to have only grown. 

The two have a wonderful family life along with their two sons, Adrian Lifeson and Justin Lifeson, both of whom are fully grown adults and have chosen their respective paths in life.
