    be absorbed in

    HAMARU
    Literally 'fall into...'. Quite a slangish
    word for 'be absorbed in'.
    "He has fallen into Karaoke."
    "He has fallen into computer games."
    They seem to work. Do they? Someone has fallen
    into something and cannot get out of the habit.
    Are there some other slang expressions in English?
    Thank you.

    Thank you. Does "He has gotten hooked on computer games" work?
