Because, for, since, as I've read that since and as are used interchangeably in this context (cause and consequence)

But BECAUSE has a different connotation

And for is used the same than Because but it's more formal

So my question is what I read is true ?

Can I say

I'm leaving as I'm tired

Or

As I'm tired I'm leaving

Or

Why are you leaving ?

Because/AS I'm tired...

Of the options listed, “Because I’m tired” would be the most common response. All three would be easily understood but “I’m leaving as I’m tired” doesn’t sound like something a native English speaker would normally say. If I were making a comment and not answering a question I would probably say “since I’m tired, I’m leaving now” or something like that. Hopefully this helps!! ¡Saludos desde Atlanta Georgia!
