White smoke is from water in the exhaust.
A failing head gasket can cause this.
Is your coolant level droping
Goes the oil on your dipstick look milky
Both of these are symptoms of a blown head gasket.

the problem can also be a cracked head or cylinder wall

Have a leak down test done to confirm if its a head gasket leak.

Smoke coming from engine


Where is the white smoke coming from? Under hood? Out tail pipe? If excessive white smoke from tail pipe, suspect a head gasket failure which in turn will fill the cooling system with exhaust pressure forcing the coolant to come out of the reservoir and resulting in an overheating problem

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.

You must have a leaking engine cylinder head gasket. Have a local shop confirm this for you as it is a very expensive repair.
