Bottom line behaviour is any sexual or emotional or physical act which, once engaged in, leads to loss of control of the addictive process.

There are warning signs sometimes called top lines or mid-lines which warn the addict that s/he may be engaging in behaviour which may lead to loss of sobriety.

An example of bottom line behaviour for a Sex Addict might be cruising the streets or looking at the covers of pornographic magazines. These behaviours can lead to loss of sobriety.
