nevertheless, nonetheless

nevertheless, nonetheless
These words mean "notwithstanding," "however," "in spite of that": "I don't like what you plan, but nevertheless (or nonetheless) I'll help." Since these are rather long words, why not occasionally use a shorter one such as however, but, still, or yet?
