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?

Hi guys,

I am Moses, a student of Pharmacy. I have a blog called diabetestipshub. I have been running this blog for some months now but [strike]so[/strike] many people have complained to me in recent weeks that I have some problems in using [STRIKE]of[/STRIKE] no comma here "has" and "as" no comma here and it is one of the reasons [STRIKE]why[/STRIKE] I joined this forum. Can someone please explain to me how to [STRIKE]make[/STRIKE] use [STRIKE]of[/STRIKE] them, with examples?

Note my corrections above. It's important to capitalise the word "I" every time you write it.

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.

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.
