Slow the descent down.
Instead of focusing on sitting straight down, concentrate on breaking at the knees and keeping your torso vertical. You should be able to get down to about midway with zero change in torso angle, at that point a little forward lean is permissible. If you make the whole rep a little slower you'll be able to at least get down in the correct position.
It doesn't really matter how you get up (yet).
Lower the weight as well, and obviously stretch before
you actually squat.
