When I was 10 or 12, our family stopped practicing religion, so I was never really what you'd call pious. But it took me almost 50 years to shake up the last remaining shreds of superstitious belief in a vague divinity or in the possibility of an afterlife.

@Hope, I wouldnt go so far to call my parents moderate, somewhere in the middle ground. Even today I have a very strong grasp on Christian holy book(s).

It took me a while to recover, it was like walking on broken glass for me.
