'a smoker' is the definition.
The answer and definition can be both man-made objects as well as being singular nouns.

'craig' is an anagram of 'CIGAR'.

'into' acts as a link.

(Other definitions for cigar that I've seen before include "Cylinder of tobacco" , "Havana, perhaps" , "Close, but no ___ !" , "Big roll of tobacco" , "Corona, eg" .)
