Create breathing steam

Hi,
Yesterday I tried to create a breathing steam, you know when it's very cold outside and you breathe by the mouth you have steam, but I couldn't make it..I tried with 3D particles, in textures "white smoke" but when I reduce the size and change the speed, well the smoke becomes like snow flakes...So does anyone know how to create the steam or with which effect can I create it??? (hope you understand cause I don't know exactly how to call it)
Thank you for your help

    Keep the particles large, but reduce the alpha until they are almost transparent.

    Thank you Axel!!! it works!!! so great!!! you are the best!
    Axel, I wanna tell you that I created a shadow!!!!!! lol Yeah! ok it's not perfect,but I have my shadow on the floor, I explain, I created a "floor" and added with blend mode but there is a color difference with the background, I tried with overlay and multiply as you said, but the plan stays darker than the background...so we see a dark rectangle around the shadow not black or white but darker than the background....how to correct it??
    thanks again Axel :D
