Have you checked your anti-freeze? Are you losing any?

If it smells sweet, then you probably have a blown head gasket or leaking intake gasket.

If you were losing anti freeze I'd say you blew a head gasket and you're burning coolant. Is the smoke and water drip happen when u first start car? Does it go away after a while? Then I'd say it's condensation and you're burning water left in your exhaust when car cools down.

Maybe it is just condensation in your exhaust.
Short trips to where the engine/exhaust system does not get fully warmed up will cause that and the more humid it is the worse it gets.
