Yes, it can: Smoking increases the damage caused by injurious agents in liver disease. Several studies have shown association of increased liver damage with smoking in patients with alcoholic liver disease and viral hepatitis, as well as fatty liver disease. If you have cirrhosis, do yourself a favor and stop smoking.
