Also don't use the handbrake as the guy from the UK suggest, just keep your foot on the brake as that is the most efficient and strong hold for the vehicle on hills, in traffic, traveling at any miles per hour.

Less time the clutch is engaged... the less wear
Agree with the handbrake. Doesn't help at all, holding the brake is better. And honestly, at the end of the day you just have to get used to it. If it still bothers you then just get an auto, nothing else you can do.

Personally, when I see brake lights in front of me I usually just cruise in neutral and brake when needed. Don't worry about anyone behind you, if they hit you they pay for it so it's worthless to worry about what they're doing. And when I'm moving, slow or not, and I need to go back in gear I always rev match. Just my 2 cents.
