A_FIB triggers

I know this is prolly too much of a broad question  as everyone is different ,but  having been diagnosed  with   a-fib after I had an atttack in March ,no other symptoms  for the rapid  hear rate , put on  toprol xl  25 mg.good for  7 mos . and another issue last week , still no other symptons  but the heart  flutter  and rate  from 50  to   160 ... Put on digoxin and  it seemed to put me in a  normal mode in a few hours .. I would like to know of other' s who  also have this and what they believe  caused  the heart to suddenly go A-Fib?/// i blamed sleeping on left   side ?   told  it's not  possible  .before the 2 nd  episode i ws on  coumadin and toprol 25 ... after  that episode  added   digoxin and upped  the toprol ...anyway any answer's  would be welcome  

...

Caffeine is a common trigger for a-fib.  Alcohol was also on the list as a trigger, but when I questioned my doctor a little further, he indicated that excessive consumption was the problem.
