"We use "already"  in a positive sentence. "Already" goes before the main verb.

‘Already’ is used to say that something has happened early – or earlier than it might have happened."

For example: I have already finished my supper.

                       I have already completed my assignment.


We use  "just" when something happened a short time ago. 

                ‘Just’ is usually used only with the present perfect tense. 


  For example: I have just had my supper.

                         I have just finished my project.
