Your partying days are over. Even just alcohol will cause you serious trouble. You need to spend some serious time detoxing. Vitamin supplements will help. B-12 (500 to 1000 mcgs), a B-50 or B-100 complex, Omega's, a strong multi-vitamin like GNC Mega brand and healthy eating. No caffeine, no alcohol or drugs, no MSG or artificial sweeteners (No diet Coke or Pepsi Zero, etc). It will take your brain a few weeks to start to get toxin free.
You also need to slow down your life. No late nights. You need good quality sleep with a quiet day time environment.
And, throw out the calendar for tracking your symptoms. You can be symptoms free for a month and just a little stressor can set you back to the beginning.
Most important, you need to start making decisions that take this experience into account. I was extremely luck when in 1971, I suffered my third concussion and started having more serious symptoms. My neurologist advised me to never drink alcohol. I tried drinking small amounts a few times. Once I had a large beer at a pizza restaurant. The next day I was a total mess. My brother called and noticed my struggles. He called later and asked if I was hung-over because I sounded very hung-over to him. I had consumed about 20 to 24 ounces of beer.
That was the last time I ever consumed alcohol.
You need to consider the same issue. Research shows that a single serving is not a serious problem.
My best to you.

58 years old, retired due to disability, married 33 years, father of three, grandfather of four, Suffered a serious concussion at 10 years old (1965) stopped most driving after last concussion at 46 years old (2001), Post Concussion Syndrome/Multiple Concussion/Impact Syndrome with PTSD, immediate and short term visual and auditory memory problems, slowed processing speed, visual and auditory processing difficulties, insomnia, absence seizures, OCD, 14 concussions since first concussion at 8 years old, Taking paroxetine for 14 years and gabapentin for 12 years. Added L-Tryptophan and successfully stopped all paroxetine after 3 months of tapering down. I currently take 500 mgs of L-Tryptophan when I wake up, 500 mgs after breakfast with my vitamin regimen and 500 mgs late in the evening.
As of Nov 15th, Due to high stress issues resulting in PTSD, my docs put me on three meds. Clonazepam (Klonopin, a dreaded benzo but only for 30 days ) .125 mgs twice daily (Doc prescribed .25 mgs twice daily but half a tablet is doing good) , citalopram (Celexa), an SSRI , and olanzapine (Zyprexa), an atypical anti-psychotic before bed. I have lost over 30 pounds since mid July. The olanzapine is supposed to help me gain some of it back but it has just stopped the weight loss. They took me off the gabapentin. I am feeling better than I have in years.
I am also taking L-Theanine to help with GABA regulation
