I struggle with drawing, school, a social life (I'm home-schooled and hardly see the light of day), Even doing simple stupid stuff like running 10 feet (asthma). And just like you, I want to lucid dream so bad, but I probably won't, because nothing I do works.
That's how I used to look at things. Now, I only learned about lucid dreaming 2 weeks ago, And I understand that you haven't had a lucid dream in a year, so I can only imagine what your frustration might be. And you're right, without reason, without drive, nobody would achieve anything. That's exactly how I think. I said the same words myself many times. Instead of forgetting about lucid dreaming for a while, like these guys want you to, (no offense, but that just doesn't sit well with me) try finding other ways.
Edison tried 1000 times to make a incandescent light bulb, but only one time worked? No, Many of the trial light bulbs worked, but only for a couple seconds. Each time he made one he got closer and closer to the working light bulb.
I guess what I'm trying to say is, Take a step back, look at everything you've done to lucid dream, and either find out where you're going wrong or find another way to lucid dream. There's always another way.
I hope I helped, and please don't take me as the kind of guy that thinks they know everything, because I'm not, I just want to help.
Thank you as well for your input. I too have asthma, suck at school, drawing, math, meh haha. Its good to hear from someone coming from my point of view. I beat my asthma, I re-evaluated the actual importance of school, instead of drawing I began writing, and screw math. I agree, there is always an alternate, always another route to take you where you wanna be.
