Hi, I am a 37 year old male.  I don't keep my hair, eat meat, drink occasionally but believe in my religion.  I am trying to be a better Sikh but find it very hard.

My question is, am I still considered a Sikh?

my question is that do you believe in one Akaal, ten Gurus and in Guru Granth Panth? 

if you do so you can be classified as a Sehajdhari Sikh.

try stay away from halal or beef and also try to follow the three tenets of Guru Nanak:

1. meditate on God

2.Earn a honest living

3.Share your wealth with others.

What is the benefit in a title, if it doesn't improve you? If you ask whether your Sikh or not, the answer is whether you are trying to follow Sikhi or not, (I'm not talking about Kesh, meat, or drinking), but whether you learn from what Guru Sahib has actually said.

What exactly do you mean by "believe" as far as sikhism is concerned ?

I see many sikhs thesedays, even some who keep kes, just try to glue their all-inclusive spiritual , modern moorings onto "sikhism".

Then they think this is what "sikhism" is ! 

See , for starters, keep it simple bro. Do meditate on name of god , work for a living, and share with less fortunate. Be humble.

Also read Guru granth sahib sometimes, preferably in gurmukhi. You will love it , trust me

why do you want to wear a dastar without the kesh ...what is your thinking? 

you want to keep the status and respectability of the turban?

is the jooda preventing something that the dastar isn't?

Are you living a dual life for two different groups of people?

Is there any reason for this? Maybe you want to feel part of some crew that wears turbans, maybe you think hairs are uncomfortable to grow, maybe you feel that you want to wear a turban sometimes, but not want to feel compelled to always wear one. Whatever the reason you should get your priorities straight on why you want to do this. Is it because you want to feel like a Sikh, make a fashion statement, or trying to learn what makes you happy, you must understand why you are doing what you're doing. Until that, nobody can give you any advice, that will be able to guide you.

You are definitely a muslim if you cut your hair, eat meat, drink and only believe  in religion when you are sober. You can't be a better sikh if you are not a sikh in the first place. Do you have a saucepan you can use to put on your head to cover it? This will teach you a lesson how to be a good sikh. You eat all the mutton and the chicken legs when you buy from takeaways, but not the daisies how can you be a  good sikh.
