Drunk on Confidence: Unapologetically Me… From Lost and Anxious to Self-Assured: A Memoir

Heidi Anderson

Radio and TV personality, Heidi Anderson was always the girl who wore a cardigan in summer to cover her arms, and board shorts to the beach on the rare occasion she dared to go. She spent years hating herself; silencing her body demons through sex, booze and boys.

Heidi knows what it’s like to feel alone, to deal with debilitating anxiety daily and to constantly try to please people; pretending to be okay on the outside, while suffering crushing insecurities on the inside.

After breaking down on live radio to 300 thousand listeners and making the nerve-racking confession,

I wish I could sit here and tell you that I love myself because that’s what people expect me to say, but I can’t. I absolutely hate my body

she experienced a life-changing moment.

Her gut-wrenching admission forced her to embrace her vulnerabilities, challenge her old beliefs and learn how to say a big fat “Fuck You to unrealistic beauty standards, and a big ‘'Up Yours” to all diets and society’s expectations.

Heidi is unapologetically authentic, her memoir is filled with honesty, humour and home-truths. She will show you how she dealt with her inner mean girls that told her she wasn’t skinny enough, good enough or simply that other people mattered more than she did.

Heidi will inspire you to STOP worrying what other people think and take your power back!
Today she lives in her red bikini.

'When Heidi revealed her secret on air, it was a moment. The life of the party was disarming her demons & stepping into her power. Little did she know it would create a movement.’
- Narelda Jacobs, Channel 10 Presenter

‘As someone who has struggled with confidence and body image over the years, Heidi’s memoir is the kind of thing I wish I’d been given as a teenager. It would have changed my life for the better. She’s not only completely inspiring in every way… she’s determined to save others from suffering a similar fate. As the mother of a little girl I am so grateful there are Heidi’s in the world! I’m also incredibly grateful that she manages to combine such an important story in such a compassionate, special and entertaining way!’
- Erin Molan, Sydney Breakfast Radio Host & TV presenter

‘Fate introduced me to Heidi back in 2013 when we lived together in the Big Brother house. Through the manipulated
and overproduced world of reality TV we were able to forge a genuine friendship ever since. I’m so proud of the confidence Heidi has been able to create for herself and the way she now shares this with the world! In a world full of pretenders, Heidi is an inspiration on how to keep it real!’
- Tim Dormer, Big Brother Winner & TV, Radio personality
