I'm gonna get pounded for being crass about this but here goes. You don't need to worry about going to hell, you're already there. Walking out of hell is hardest easy thing you'll ever do, you just have to decide that you want to do it. Thousands do it every day, they give up the need to have a Hell around to keep them in line to just live their lives without hurting anyone. Like Hitchens said about heaven "Not only are you invited to the party but you have to stay forever and you have to have a good time. Sounds like hell to me". Paraphrase, but it catches the gist. If that is all you have to look forward to besides Hell I don't think you have much to lose.
