Exclamation Problem starting my manual transmision

Im having trouble when i start my truck.(any time not just morning) When i go to start it I:
Put it in 1st
depress the clutch
and turn the key
...nothing happens i have to let out the clutch, keep the key turned in the egnition and the stomp the clutch pedal in and 9/10 time it will start up. some times it takes a couple kicks.
This doesnt seem right, so i could really use some tips. I have moved the floor mat all the way back so it doesnt block the pedal but that didnt do anything.

Sounds like the neutral safety switch is going bad.

Are they expensive/hard to replace?
