You have to really put your shoulder and weight behind the
drill when driving long screws. I’ve shown this to enough people
who’d never thought about it to conclude it isn’t common
knowledge. In high-resistance screwdriving situations I
get the butt of the drill right up on my chest next to my armpit
or right behind my shoulder.

Square drive screws are another alternative. They are a little
hard to find but they will pretty much end your problem.
