Where to start? I want to break apart from old habits of hack-and-slash chess but old habits are dying hard.

I have tried to relearn chess but where to start?

Any help on this would be highly appreciated, thank you.

i started playing chess because i love chess puzzles, so i learnt chess in middle games first, that's very exciting. then i know some openings from chess players here. now i'm learning endings. but it seems to be good to start with endings first.

Learn opening variations that lead directly from opening to endgame, bypassing the middlegame almost entirely. For example: Ruy Lopez exchange variation.

read How to reasses your chess
from Jeremy Silman

the best book to start changing. if u play too many blitz cut down in half or less for a while and start
analysing one game for a couple of day 1 hour a day at least. if you are already doing that and not getting to much play , play in tournaments more and play some more blitz to develop experience of the game.

simply put whatever you are doing stop doing at least for a while and start doing something else. theres your habit braker.

dont leave GK for nothing :O).

endings are fine. also i propose to you that you study openings but not in the usual way. Look at complete games , you can group them first if you want but not necesarily, and try to determine what each move is really doing, a hint its not conceptual it is te specific thing it does say control e5(d4) then contrlol e4 (knf6) to stop an e4 pawn pushing, control d5 (c4) , e6(control d5) to help stop or weak a posible d5 push by white , knc3(prepare e4 push anyway) , Bb4 stop the e4 push anyway or c5 stop the e4 push anyway and put whites center in the spot. stuff like that. every move has a specific reason they are not just conceptual.
