Since and Because

Average: 3.1 (42 votes)

Using 'since' and 'because' can be confusing, so here's the main difference between the two.

'Since' refers to time and 'because' refers to causation.

e.g. Since I quit drinking, I'm feeling much healthier.

e.g. Because I quit drinking I no longer suffer from headaches in the morning.

Fill in the blanks by using either 'since' or 'because'.
