    It is possible to get this achievement and all the other ones - which involve a lot of killing of 'innocent' citizens - in a single(-ish) playthrough by backing up your savegame at particular moments in the story.

    So play the game without letting anyone die as described in other guides and the walkthrough of the Xbox One version of the game (credits to the writers) and backup your save as described below. After your first playthrough which should unlock the Not Even Once achievement, you can import your backup save to finish the other achievements without restarting the game. If you follow the walkthrough, the 'second' playthrough to get the remaining achievements would be 1 or 2 hours long.

    Edit: Due to feedback (thanks to CrysisWarXX3) I have included a summary of the choices you'll need to make in the game to unlock the achievement. Again for more information please read the excellent walkthrough.

    How to backup and import your saves
    *** Spoiler - click to reveal ***

    When to backup your saves
    1) Chapter 1: Take me to the Hospital
    There is a point early in the game where you have the choice to embrace (kill) or release Clay Cox. Both will earn you a separate achievement, but for the Not Even Once achievement you obviously have to release Cox. So make a backup right before you make this choice, so you can go back and embrace him without going through the prologue again.
    2) Chapter 6: Antidote
    Late in the game you have to find ingredients for an antidote. After this mission your next waypoint is towards the sewers and the final boss fight. This is the point of no return. Don't follow this waypoint but backup your save.
    3) Optional
    There is a lot missable in this game, so I would suggest making a habit of backing up your saves multiple times during the story. If something goes wrong, you have a safety net and you don't have to start from the start.

    I hope this helps! If something is not clear or correct, please leave a comment.

    F77BlokyDamn, that's rough! Thanks for the info though.

    Previously, I didn't want to include the specific choices for the achievement, mainly because there are a lot of (better) guides for that and I reference those in my guide. However, if I can make it easier for other players I will include a summary of the choices you'll need to make in the game.

    snake42069you can actually charm aloysius and turn geoffrey, and it wont void any achievements. In order to charm aloysius you have to get both of his hints before talking to him in his mansion.

    F77Bloky@snake42069 Good to know. There are indeed some variations in choices that won't void the achievement. The choices in the guide are just the ones I made during my playthrough while following the walkthrough.

    You should definitely look at the other guide for a way to backup your saves.

    For the sake of convenience, I've added the major decisions of the game that you MUST pick. Otherwise, you risk losing out on this achievement and having to do another play-through.

    Obviously, you cannot embrace any civilians at any point in the entirety of your play-though.
    Another VERY IMPORTANT thing to remember is that you CANNOT kill the vicar during the Mary boss fight. Many guides say that you can which was true in a previous patch of the game.
    Lastly, there is no way to do the xp glitch on the windows version of the game.

    Here are the decisions you must make throughout the game.
