Can be a few things. 1) Check the shift solenoids on top of the transmission (front). Remove them and clean out the screens. This would mean your transmission fluid is over due for changing. 2) Maybe it's the Vehicle Speed Sensor (VSS), locate and change that. It's on top of the transmission back under the thermostat area. 3) It could be your Transmission Control Unit (TCU). It's under the floor carpet on your passenger side near the firewall. There is a metal plater covering your ECU and your TCU. The TCU is the smaller box. Remove it, open it and look for burnt items. If you're handy you can replace those items. If you are replacing the unit, make sure it is from a known good one and it matches your car exactly, ie: EX, LX, DX, SE, sport shift button present?, etc... on the circuit board.

Below is a picture of the TCU opened up, here are the transmission codes that your car can display if you are inclined to jump the OBD wire plug to get the reading.

TCU Codes:

CODE LIST:

1-Lock-up solenoid 'A' circuit open or shorted.
2-Lock-up solenoid 'B' circuit open or shorted.
3-Throttle Position Sensor circuit open or shorted.
4-Vehicle Speed Sensor open or shorted - No signal from speedometer.
5-Shift Lever Position Switch circuit shorted.
6-Shift Lever Position Switch circuit open.
7-Shift Solenoid 'A' circuit open or shorted.
8-Shift Solenoid 'B' circuit open or shorted.
9-Counter shaft or transmission speed pulse generator open or shorted.
10-Coolant Temperature Sensor open or shorted.
11-Engine RPM (Ignition coil signal) open or shorted.
12-(No code 12 used)
13-Main shaft speed pulse generator open or shorted.
14-Linear (line pressure control) solenoid open or shorted.
15-Kick down switch circuit shorted.

SOURCE: 92 Honda Accord, 5 speed, hard shifting into first & second gear.

First thing to do,try to pump your clutch before you shift into 1st gear then if you feel makes better, most probably you have problem with your hydraulic clutch system, check the clutch line if there is an evidence of fluid leaking or it could be internal leak.

Second thing to do, check your transmission oil, may be it' s too old or you use a thick oil thats why when cold its hard to shift then when the engine rich the normal temperature(warm) the oil become thin and the shifting will smooth. Remember the very old oil become thicken and the purity is gone and can cause of hard shifting. in this regards i suggest you to change the transmission oil and check the used oil if there is small peace of metals, then you are in big trouble,
