But seriously, knowing the color of the smoke will help diagnose the problem. Gray, white, black... different problems produce different colors of smoke.

Smoking can be a manifestation of several things: peer pressure, poor parenting, low self-esteem, addictive personality... or any combination of things.

smoking and using oil, smokes more when going down a long hill or hard on the gas. sure sounds like a oil consumption problem somewhere. color of smoke can help confirm this.[blueish]
could be sucking oil past the piston rings. can you do a compression check?
maybe a bad intake valve oil seal?
or soobs are known to have problems with the pcv system. do you know if the pcv valve is working and hoses hooked up correctly?
just some ideas...

Remember, your compression rings and oil control rings are separate entities, you can have a missing oil control ring, burn tonnes of oil, and still have good compression.
