Runs Rough when Cold

I have been wondering lately, when i start my car in the morning after it sat all night, or at night when it sat all day it runs rough. I dont mean cold outside, i just mean when the engine is cold. It has been 70s-80s lately in the morning so its not cold by anymeans. So in the summer, i keep my choke fully open, to a point it doesnt shut at all.

could this rough idle and wanting to stall be that? should i still have the choke somewhat engaged? If i let it warm up for a few minutes by holding the gas down it runs just fine, its just that first start after a night or day of not running.

I dont think i need all my specs for this one, its probably a basic carburation answer im looking for.

thanks
