Natasha Lyonne has some big names in her corner.

As the Golden Globe nominee, 43, documents her journey to quit smoking on social media, she's been met with some words of encouragement from the likes of Melissa Etheridge and Lily Tomlin.

"Hey @nlyonne I see you are quitting smoking. As a 19-year cancer thriver, I want to give you all of the encouragement I can," wrote Etheridge, 61, on Twitter. "Your show #PokerFace freaking rocks!! Just like #RussianDoll you are amazing! You got this!! It's so cool!!"

Lyonne responded: "Woowowow!! Thank you!! So cool!!"

The Poker Face star previously shared a throwback selfie with a cigarette in her mouth, writing: "I miss smoking a lot already."

She added on Twitter, "Not sold and my phone keeps making memory videos that include smoking like some dark temptress. I'm day 3 no smoking don't @ me."

"Chin up, darling," replied Tomlin, 83, to which Lyonne wrote: "Wow! If getting encouragement from you is a perk of not smoking - I'll take it!"

"Then we will continue our encouragement. The world needs your artistry and vision, so choose wisely for yourself," Tomlin added. They previously starred together in 1998's Krippendorf's Tribe.

The Orange Is the New Black alum referred to herself as "a non-smoker who has rededicated myself to a life of directing" shortly after quitting the habit on Monday. "Can I smoke yet?" she wrote the next day on Twitter.

"Why can't someone invent a healthy cigarette? I thought this was the future," Lyonne added in another cold turkey musing on Thursday.
