Whether or not an issue is "discussed" depends on one thing and one thing only... is anyone listening?

In LL's case, there's no point. She'd be talking to alcohol and alcohol doesn't listen.

Label it as shutting down, walking away, what have you, but unless you're listening for understanding then there's no point in talking. Discussing, talking, thinking about a response, opining, labeling, defending, tucking away information for later use to justify your position....none of these count. Only listening that is listening for understanding counts.

If no one is listening then there's no point in talking.
