Addicts speak of top lines to prevent approaching doing something which may trigger a slip, relapse or loss of sobriety.

As addicts work with sponsors to help them understand their addiction and the behaviors which trigger their addiction or actions which endanger their sobriety, they form a list of things which tip them off that they are in danger. Top lines are flags on the edge of minefield. The mines are bottom line behaviour.
