Teddy, partying doesn't mean drinking. It can mean going out and having fun with friends. To assume it means drinking you just eliminated a lot of the population that doesn't drink. This post shows more that your problems are with administration and parents being able to control your workload. I can guarantee you would have received a much better response about possibilities of how to handle your situation if you focused on the problems of the job instead of focusing on the partying with your friends (not saying drinking here). The first year is hard where ever you teach. It is harder when the school is difficult. Not all teachers hate their jobs, but almost every one had a tough first year because it is a challenge. There are many things that aren't taught in school. There are a million things to do and it all has to be done and organization is the key. Planning the first year is the toughest because you are learning and you have few resources to use. However, if you enjoy the teaching part, not the other crap that has a lot to do with the environment you are in, I wouldn't jeopardize a license because of a bad year. It is your choice, but be sure that it is teaching you hate, not just the current situation. What are nontechnical friends?
