I know in my case, it's usually because I don't heed the warning signs.

I know something bad is happening (e.g. either sharp pain, or chronic pain in one of the joints), but I'm addicted, so instead of taking care of the problem, I just keep working through it. I really hate the rest part of RICE so I typically ignore it. I'm an idiot, I know what it'll lead to, I know it'll take longer to heal, but I do it anyway and hope for the best.

As I've gotten older, I've basically been forced to be more careful as it takes A LOT longer to heal. I'm a bit smarter now than I was 10 years ago, but only a bit!
