>I just fall backwards, every time.

Without knowing anything, I'd say check your back angle - it's probably too vertical. If you're falling backwards, point your nipples at the floor.


But really, just find a weightlifting coach and spend some money to get some coaching sessions. They can fix this stuff in minutes.

And if you find the vertical back angle more natural, you should try high bar squatting. With high bar you will also benefit from having your heels slightly raised with a plate under your heel or weightlifting shoes.
