Smoking is addictive. Giving up can be one of the hardest things you will ever do. But your liver will thank you for it.

Smoking affects the liver because it’s toxic. It also causes inflammation and can lead to cancer. If you have liver disease, continuing to smoke increases your risk of developing fibrosis and hepatocellular carcinoma (liver cancer) and can speed up the damage in your liver.

Smoking is also bad for your heart and lungs. People with liver disease often also have heart problems. If your lungs are affected by smoking, you may not be able to have a liver transplant, or you may not do so well after surgery.
