Light blue smoke, heavy gas smell.. Q JET

I've started to drive my car a bit more often now and notice that it tends to smoke when I come to a stop. It very well could be smoking while I'm driving but I can't notice it. The smoke appears to be light blue with a strong smell of gas. I read somewhere that it could be running too rich. So i thought about fiddling with the fuel mixtures screws with the hopes of correcting the problem. As we all know Q-jets can be a bit tough to work with especially if you dont know them. I've done a few google searches and there are hundres of pages that go into alot of detail. I've read about 30 pages and still have no clue....

Another thing I must mention is that the choke is currently open at all times. My quadrajet is a manaul choke but I've never "closed" the choke manually after the car has warmed up. Could this be why it smokes also???
