Do you take the Lord's name in vain?

Do you find yourself saying things like "for God's sake!", "Heaven help us", etc?

Or do you, as an atheist, make a conscious effort to abstain from using these figures of speech?

I'd be interested in hearing fellow atheists' thoughts on this.

Thank you, you are right. The English and German dictionaries define the correct spelling of the word. The alternative or wrong spelling only gets 854 results on Google.

Thanks Napoleon!
How very interesting.  Is that why nose plugs were invented? Keep out SATAN.  I wonder if those nasal strips work, as well?
I tend to use them still, just because it is ingrained in my speaking habits. I don't really see the purpose of curtailing what I say when by the Christian standards I grew up with I was already doomed to hell for saying them before I made the change to atheism lol.

Regarding OMG  

I think I have never said "Oh my god", but instead I've said thousands and thousands of times "Oh my goodness".
