With older engines or engines with lots of miles start to burn oil. this oil collects around the inside the the exhaust system, its not uncommon for it to get burned out, the water coming out is condensation that accumulates after the engine being shutdown and cooling, so when you start the engine it blows it out.
If you have constant smoke then you could have bad valve guides or bad rings on your pistons
hope this helps.

My honda civic shakes a little when I start it in the morning and then it's fine after a few minutes


DO YOU SEE YOUR HONDA CIVIC SMOKE AT THE TAIL PIPE, COULD IT BE THAT IT SMOKES WHITE.
HAVE YOU CHECKED YOUR COOLANT LEVEL,
IF YOU NEED COOLANT OR SMOKES WHITE, MEANS THAT COOLANT GET INTO THE CYLINDER HEAD CHAMBER. ALL IT NEEDS IS A SMALL AMOUNT TO MAKE IT SKIP.

The mechanic should check on the battery if low in electricity then charge .There are some cases that some times when a car is hard to start the cost of the problem is the battery . If still wont start then you'll have to choke and it will run .
