I've cut down for the last eight weeks from 30 cigarettes to 3/4 a day and vaping a lot but it's only now my gums are bleeding.
Has anyone else had this ?

It's a normal side effect of giving up smoking. It's not a side effect of vaping!

Smoking masks gum disease, and when you stop the blood circulates better in your gums hence the bleeding. It will pass.

I had this! It's a good time to book a dentist appointment and see the hygienist. If your gums are bleeding you have gum disease and need to get it sorted.
