Seizure attacks

Patient

Q: Hi doctor, my name is mitesh. I had first seizure in June 2011 and then my doctor asked me to do the EEG and MRI test , nothing came inside and he said if you will get second attack in next 6 months then we will give you medication but normally people have first seizure and sometime nothing happens. I went back , got married and must tell you I party 1 or 2 days in week. So just a night before I did Parth and next day I had 6 seizure attacks in almost 4 hours. I was rushed into ambulance and admitted for 2 days . Now I am under medication . I am taking 330 mg Dilantin. Doctor has schedule one more EEg test in April. I am scared and just want to know That do I have an epilepsy and do I quit alcohol or anything else to prevent the attack?
