2005 Ford Focus • 180,000 miles

Lately when I start my car for the first time in a day itdoesnt want to start. It acts like it does but if I continue to keep letting it try im afraid I am going to end up with a dead battery. Yesterday I tried like four times and it just kept trying but nothing. As I tried again this time I stepped on the gas. It started but I noticed that smoke came out the back. I reved it a couple of times and it was fine. Thanks for your time.
