Hi Sarah and thanks for this post. Good to hear from you again.
It sounds as if you're taking quite a bit of strain and if your partner isn't willing to sit down with you and at least hear you out, in an adult manner which implies being able to relate to your concerns and respect your feelings, there isn't much you can do. A few sessions of couple counselling could help focus on key issues in the relationship and facilitate better communication.
I'm curious about why she started smoking - can you recall what brought that on? What was happening in her world, and in your relationship, at that time?
