General Surgeon 's  Response
There is a long list of causes of hoarseness. You should consult an ENT surgeon. If you have already done that with a negative ENT examination, then get thyroid hormone level checked to rule out hypothyroidism. If that's normal, then get upper GI endoscopy to look for acid reflux ('GERD'). If that is also normal, then get a repeat ENT check-up (with a span of ~ 1 month between 2 check-ups).
Importantly, the factors you have mentioned in your symptoms such as shouting, talking a lot, drink alcohol etc. are all responsible individually/collectively for hoarseness! Avoid them for a specific trial period such as over a couple of months or so and see the result for yourself!
Wish you all the best.
