A new approach to quenched random problems, based on constructing an equivalent annealed system, is presented. The difficulties with the existing solutions of the random field problem are discussed. The new approach is applied to the random field problem yielding a different new result for the dimensionality shift. A by-product of this result is that the lower critical dimension is 2 for the Ising model.
