The problem is worn valve stem guides. You can replace the seals but as you learned will last about 3 months before doing it again. The only way to fix it permanantly is to **** out (resize) the valve guides, which means rebuilding the heads.
What happens is as the engine sits at rest, the residual oil film runs down the valve stem into the cylinders (or manifold on closed valves). When you start up this little oil is burned off, resulting in the smoking.
This problem will get progressivly worse because when something is worn, with continued use, wears faster. Estimate a year +, depending on usage, till you are smoking continuously due to so much guide wear that oil is finding its way in faster. changing the seals will last shorter time also as time progresses.
