What do I need to do before booking the first flight of a 5-month backpacking trip?

I'm about to book a flight from the UK to Bangkok (flying late Feb) to start a backpacking trip. I've got a recently renewed passport and funds for travel. I haven't got a flight back (not using a RTW ticket), travel insurance, VISAs, vaccinations or anything else yet. I want to book the flight so that it's real and happening, but is there anything else I really need to do FIRST?

I'll be going on to Thailand, Cambodia, Laos, Vietnam, Indonesia, China and Japan, returning around the start of August. Please set my mind at rest, so I can click Confirm and make it happen. Thanks hive mind.
