I've not experienced an issues 1st to 2nd, but I did have an issue with 2nd to 3rd. Changing the gearbox oil, using genuine Honda Manual Transmission Fluid really helped. I'd look into getting that done to start with.
If you've been driving it hard and rushing the shifts into 2nd (especially forcing it into 2nd on downshift at higher revs without throttle blip), it could be the synchro on 2nd wearing. Likewise if you are rushing your shifts, you might not have been pushing the clutch in all the way while shifting. This could also lead to worn synchro. It could also be the clutch needing adjusting.
Slow your shifts down, the Euro isn't a race car.
