Use Find&Replace (Ctrl+H or Menu->Edit) not Find alone because it does not have the options you want. A window will pop-up instead of only a line above the statusline.

Type bbb into the search box and check "Whole words only" thats it.

If it is greyed out, click on "more Options" and uncheck regular expressions.
