My boyfried complains that he has blood in his mouth in the mornings when he wakes up, he is a smoker and does smoke alot during the day, can this be a cause?

no smoking is not the likely cause.
80% of the time bleeding gums are a result of plaque accumulation in the gums.
See a dentist for a cleaning
