Your automatic choke isn't working properly or at all. If the vehicle is fuel injected (which it probably is) the fault could probably be traced to a faulty sensor somewhere. If the car is carburetted either the carburettor needs tuning or replacing. What you are doing right now is no problem, try not to rev the motor too hard though (rev it as little as possible without the motor stalling).
