    Welcome to the forum.

    Note my corrections above. Leave a space before an opening bracket and after every comma. Always capitalise the word "I".

    Which one would you choose and why?

    Also note that thread titles like "Help" are not useful. Titles should include some or all of the words you are querying. A good title for this post would have been "Give out/away/off".

    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: Help

    I would use "away" there. It is the most common for that context, at least in AmE.

    Lucky you, Christian. You were given the answer before you got around to answering my question in post #2.
