I am just the opposite. I like and enjoy working with threads quite a bit. I work with CUDA also and CPUs and GPUs have significant differences when it comes to multithreading. We had an interesting discussion yesterday at work about a key processing loop in an algorithm we are converting for use on GPUs in CUDA. My colleagues were baffled when I told them in the GPU code there will be no for loop because the thread scheduler implements it for us. We just tell it how many threads to fire. It took them a few minutes to grasp the concept but then the lights came on and they all went, "oh, well @#$%" because it dawned on them how simple it really is. Threading with CPUs is not quite as simple but I have never had much of a problem with it.
