Just one more drink can hurt -- that's the message of new health department ad campaign going up in subways and bars across the city.

The ads urge New Yorkers to think twice before ordering one last drink in order to keep friends from getting hurt or hurting others.

The new campaign follows the release of a Health Department report that showed more than one in five adults in the city were harmed by someone else's drinking at least once in the past six months.

Excessive drinking increases the risk of many health problems, such as injury, depression, insomnia, hepatitis, liver cirrhosis and hypertension.
