1) Is it a LOT of smoke?

2) Is it pure white, or bluish?

3) What does the smoke smell like? Is it a sweet smell?

4) What kind of additive did you put in?

Keep and eye on your coolant level. Look at the coolant in the radiator when it's cool and see if there's an oily film on top from oil getting into the coolant.

Pull off the oil filler cap just after shutting off the engine when it's warm and look for foam and a sweet smell, which would indicate coolant in your oil. You don't want coolant in your oil for very long.. it isn't good for the engine at all.

If the oil isn't too full and it's still smoking.. time to start calling around to shops to price a headgasket install, or, if you're mechanically minded, time to do some research and replace it yourself.
