    Hello Moses and welcome to Using English.

    In the future, please give your thread a title that talks about your subject. I have edited yours for you.

    Aside from sounding similar, "has" and "as" have almost no relation.

    "Has" is a verb form of "to have."
    I have, you have, we have, they have -- He or she has.

    Can you provide a few sentences where you have used the wrong form?
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Note my corrections above. It's important to capitalise the word "I" every time you write it.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Thanks for the responses.

    I don't keep my mistakes so it's better you give an additional example so i can understand better.

    Re: Grammatical help: As and Has

    OK, then. If you don't have any examples for us, try these (tell us whether you would use "has" or "as" in each space.

    He ______ a car.
    My cousin ________ been to London three times.
    It's not my house, ________ I told you before.
    _______ anyone here read Lord of the Rings?
    It's difficult for him to quit, ________ he ________ been smoking for over ten years.
    I am ______ drunk _______ a lord.
    He ______ _______ many books ________ I do.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    I've spent a few minutes reading your site. You used as and has correctly every place I found either word.
    I am not a teacher.

    5. It's difficult for him to quit, has he have been smoking for over ten years. (2 errors)
    6. I am as drunk as a lord.
    7. He has as many books as I do.

    See above. You need to try again with numbers 4 and 5.

    As I pointed out in post #3, it's important to capitalise the word "I" every time you use it. Also, when you're copying sentences, as you did here, take care to copy them correctly. You omitted several full stops and made some spelling errors.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
