Change Management: Theory versus Practice

I would like to make a comparison between theory and practice in change management. I am writing a paper in which I discuss the following sentence: "I smoke, I know it is bad for me, but I won't stop".
I would like to highlight the fact that theory is hard to put in practice, but I don't know how to.
I didn't find any website where I can find an answer.
Moreover, I need examples, one where a change theory has been successful in practice, and one were it was not succesfull.
I already have explained the way to change in a company, based on Lewin's process of change (unfreezing, change, refreezing), and Force Field Analysis.
Could someone help and reply a tip, idea or experience? Thanks in advance.
