It doesn't sound like he hates you at all. In fact, it sounds like he's really protective of you. Maybe he still wants to be with you, but whether he wants a relationship or a friendship, he's getting a little territorial when your boyfriend comes around. Have you asked him if he thinks Guy 2 is good for you? Do you think Guy 2 is good for you? You mentioned that your initial fight with Guy 1 was about your addiction. There are many different kinds of addictions, but I want to say first off that if your addiction is in any way potentially harmful to your health, then I definitely encourage you to reach out to someone for help. If it is potentially harmful, then Guy 1 may really care about you and want the best for you, especially since you've been friends for so long, so your argument and his reaction to Guy 2 might have been his ways of trying to help you. I always find it helpful to assume the best of someone else's intentions and approach them from that place. You might try talking to Guy 1 about what's going on with the intention of just listening and really hearing what he's feeling right now.
