Curious. Its understandable that many people feel easily hurt about criticism of their appearance or behaviour - but you seem to be saying that while that doesn't bother you. But you are apparently greatly bothered when someone else doesn't do what they said they would do, even though this is obviously not your fault at all ?
Smoking is indeed very difficult to give up, and I'd gree with Purple's quote, that it can be harder to stop than heroin addictions. Most people who try to stop fail a few times before they succeed. So its not useful to greatly blame him for a failure to do so - and still less, not to blame yourself. You can't give it up for him.
He surely didn't choose not to give up, simply to betray you ? I hope in your studies you are exploring methods like Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy, which can help one to change unfruitful and unhelpful habits of thought
