The question isn't whether or not you can avoid threads. Of course you

The question is whether or not threads constitute a "natural" way to
do what you need to do. For many situations, threads can simplify the
logic and code. Conversely, using threads where they don't belong can
obviously make it worse.

I'm not urging the use of threads here, I'm urging the consideration
of threads.
