Something inside of me said I should't take communion because I receive the Lord unworthy, then I tried to comfort myself with the thaught that I was not even sure if I commited a mortal sin and that it was nonsens that I think that drinking a little too much is grave matter. At the end I decided to take communion since my priest told me the churche advices to do so if you are not 100% sure that it was grave matter. Could I have sinned by taking the communion?

Since you forgot to confess an old sin, you were in the clear to receive communion.

Drunkeness is a sin, meaning clearly drinking to excess to a point that you're senses are impaired. I would recommend that you speak to a priest, since you sound scrupulous. Always remember St. Alphonsus Liguori's advice: if you doubt it was mortal, give yourself the benefit of the doubt, and receive our Lord.
