Spitting blood is not normal under any circumstance. Make an appointment to see a dentist.

Regardless of the cause, you need to be examined by a dentist and physician.

Bleeding is not normal. Smoking may have damaged your gums, throat, lungs. Can be quite serious. Glad you quit smoking, now go for health evaluations. See BOTH Dentist & Physician...you owe it to yourself. Let them diagnose cause of the bleeding and appropriate treatment. Don't blow this off.
