As for another user who suggested she compensate for the lack of nicotine with the use of "edibles," Arquette responded, "I'm ahead of you there."

She also responded to another user who shared a story about losing her own father to lung cancer in 2012 and explained how "seeing him go from this strong and seemingly healthy man to skin and bones was the hardest thing I've had to see."

"I’m so sorry," replied Arquette -- who is the mother to a 31-year-old son, Enzo, and a 17-year-old daughter, Harlow. "Yes, I don’t [want] my kids to go through that."

"We will call our quitters gang THE HELLXATS," she tweeted, excitedly.

As the coronavirus pandemic continues to spread and the outbreak sweeps across the country, states and cities nationwide have started implementing social distancing protocols, designed to encourage people to stay home and away from large crowds.

The effort to stop or slow the spread of COVID-19 has led to the cancellation of nearly every planned event in show business, the closure of nearly every casino in Las Vegas and postponement of essentially all concerts and festivals for the next several months.

While Arquette is taking steps to improve her health during this outbreak, a number of celebrities have also contracted the illness, including Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, actress and model Olga Kurylenko, Game of Thrones star Kristofer Hivju and Idris Elba.

In the United States alone, there have over been 4,500 reported cases of the virus, which has led to 86 known deaths thus far.
