    Instead, why don't you provide context/a full sentence as I asked you to do in post #3 above?
    No, I don't think I am beating a dead horse because I note every correction provided by native speakers and I have fifteen of them and of course I take a backup of them and I refresh them. By this way I won't make those mistakes in the future again. I.e your corrections do not become waste.

    Thank you.

    Re: enter v. absorb v. go into v. pass.

    And still we wait for context/a complete sentence.

    Re: enter v. absorb v. go into v. pass.

    1. "After absorption, the alcohol enters the bloodstream and dissolves in the water of the blood." [Original]
    2. "After absorption, the alcohol is absorbed the bloodstream and dissolves in the water of the blood."
    3. "After absorption, the alcohol goes into the bloodstream and dissolves in the water of the blood."
    4. "After absorption, the alcohol pass to the bloodstream and dissolves in the water of the blood."

    My sentences probably requires some modifications and purifications from mistakes as always.

    Thank you.

    Re: enter v. absorb v. go into v. pass.

    Then what would be your idiomatic example which would retain the meaning of "enter" meaning as in the above.

    Thank you.

    I don't actually understand what you're trying to say.

    How could you say the sentence, retaning the meaning of enter used in the sentence, i.e forming sentence with another word instead of "enter.", retaining the meaning of both enter and the sentence.

    Thank you.

    Re: enter v. absorb v. go into v. pass.

    Use "goes into" or "gets into."
