The reason for this is that your motor is burning antifreeze ether from a bad head gasket or cracked head paul It all depends on if the smoke disapears right after it goes out or if it stays and if it is in the winter or summer. If it disapears and it is in the winter there is probably nothing wrong its just like when you breath in the winter time. The water I figure from reading other questions on this site it just condensation. That depends also if it is just a heavy drip for a little while or a poring out of water. Now if it smokes in the summer all the time then you might have a problem.

I feel these are unrelated but you can investigate a leak in the hoses leading to the heater core as they maybe leaking onto the exhaust pipe, that would produce white smoke, but not from within the tailpipe exhaust.
