Anxious about having another episode

5 years ago had first af after night drinking with friends and had lots of coffee every day plus stress from court appearance trying to gain access for my son from an ex . The af lasted an hour or so then nothing for 5 years but had another episode recently and went to hospital who just said stay on meds which are 1.25mg bisoprolol once a day . I do have ectopic beats occasionally too . I'm anxious I may have another episode but what can I do to be reassured I'm ok?

Should I consider Ablation?

I have had six bouts of AF over the last twenty plus years. I am taking asprin at the moment but my specialist has recommended that I should change to Warfarin or Apixaban. I am reluctant to take these because of the possibility of bleeds. Should I consider Ablation?
