so do you want a count of the max number of repeats in the string for each letter?
so a=4,s=1,d=1,f=2, or are you after just a single letter?
or the count of all the 'a''s which would be 6?

well, 'f' repeats as well in your example.
the easiest way for the count is simply

SELECT LEN(@asd) - LEN(REPLACE(@asd,'a',''))

a lot of great guys here have put together a bunch of "stairways" series on many of the SQL subjects that give great step by steps and walk throughs;
take a look here:
SQL Server Stairways Atricles

there's one that starts with t-SQL basics, and many on specific usages;
Stairway to TSQL DML
