Any form of nicotine stimulates your brain and in turn heart.This will lead to increase in heart rate and anxiety also.So refrain from taking any form of tobacco.Do regular exercise and take medicines as advised.

Smoking hookah is bad regardless of whether you were diagnosed with atrial fibrillation or not. If you have been diagnosed with a medical condition it puts your life at that much greater risk.
