What is an alternative? My phone has become my safety blanket. What is something I can use instead during awkward situations?

I find that instead of looking at my phone I try to watch people or look around at what's happening in my world. That way I can avoid an awkward silence or interaction and it gives me a chance to realise more about my world.

instead of being so addicted to the phone you should try to read, forget about reality for a sec, listen to quiet music, or just music you like, try to do some exercise, or yoga, try new things, new hobbies…
