    Have you owned the car since new or only recently. If you have had it since new then a rethink on your driving style might be needed no offence either that or you might have a problem with the master or slave cylinder. If it's only recently been aquired by you then it sounds like the previous owner ragged the clutch. Unfortunatly as it's out of warranty now and it's getting worse as time goes on then i'm afraid you might just have to bite the bullet my friend and get a new clutch installed.
