Distributor. Had this exact same problem in my old Civic. If I gave it too much throttle while cold, it would buck and jerk. After it reached operating temp it was fine. new distributor fixed the problem.

what you mean same as yours?? what year civic you had?? and what engine code?? mines the d16y8

Older, engine code is irrelevant. While the distributors have minor differences, they operate on the same basic principles. If your problem is ignition related, it's most likely something failing within the distributor itself. If it were the rotor, the problem shouldn't go away once it warms up.
