Don't support it: You really can't make someone quit an addiction. What you can do is avoid behaviors that support his habit, eg don't let anyone smoke in your home/car, have him do all the clean up of his butts/ashes, etc. Also, take care of your own issues, eg start/continue exercising, eat healthy, avoid excessive alcohol use, keep up with chores......

Marijuana & thyroid: Probably yes, but there are many details about the long term interactions between exogenous cannaboids and thyroid function that are not understood. I think the best advice to allow your treatments to work is to not smoke marijuana.

Cirrhosis: Ammonia is a breakdown product of proteins, and is toxic at high levels. One of your liver's jobs is getting rid of toxins in your body. If your liver is not working because of cirrhosis, ammonia can build up, among other things. High levels of ammonia can severely effect your central nervous system.
