Halsey is a role model in countless ways. She's used her platform to normalize mental health issues, and she's even shown young women that they don't have to shave their armpits if they don't want to.

This week, the pop star is celebrating a huge milestone–one that is sure to inspire even more of her fans.

Halsey announced on Twitter that after 10 years of smoking, she's officially kicked her nicotine habit.

"I successfully quit nicotine a few weeks ago," she tweeted. "I gained a lot of weight and probably lost some friends forever bc I was being a NUT (lol) but I'm so happy I did it and I feel v goooood." (Related: Bella Hadid's New Year's Resolution Is to Quit Juul Once and for All)

Several people congratulated the "Bad at Love" singer on the accomplishment. "I'm so proud of you, your health is more important than stupid friends," tweeted one person. "Why am I tearing up right now?? So proud of you.. and know, relapse doesn't stop progress in case anything happens. I love you," said another.

Others shared their own experiences with struggling to quit smoking. "I decided to quit smoking yesterday after being a regular smoker for the last four years...I know it's gonna be hard to quit but seeing you do it gives me even more motivation to do the same," said one person. "I smoked for 7 years and quit. It's hard but so rewarding. And it's ok to gain weight. You are bettering you!" tweeted another.

Even Kelly Clarkson—who doesn't personally know Halsey—applauded the singer. "I don't even know you and I'm proud of you!" she tweeted. "That’s amazing! You're too cool, talented, and inspiring for you to shave years off your beautiful life girl." (Related: That Girls Night Out Cigarette Isn't a Harmless Habit)

Halsey seems to be in an overall period of transition these days. In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, she admitted she no longer drinks hard alcohol or does drugs. "I support my whole family," she said. "I have multiple houses, I pay taxes, I run a business. I just can't be out getting f*cked up all the time."

Congrats to the singer for continuing to make healthy choices—and major kudos for motivating others to do the same.
