Engine stalls trying to take off after stopped

(1999 Honda Civic)
Recently my 1999 civic started stalling out at stop signs and lights when I push the gas pedal to take off. Already checked batery and alternator.

depending on mileage and service history it hard to guess without being able to experience the problem first hand, It could be a cause of needing a tune up (spark plugs, valve clearances check and adjusted (frequently over looked), and cleaning the throttle butterfly area of the throttle housing, carbon build up here causes all kinds of problems.
Do you have any Check Engine Light on? That may indicate a problem and help isolate diagnosing the problem. Is the base idle speed correct and engine other wise idling properly?
