    "already" and negation?

    Are these incorrect?

    "I already didn't feel well"
    "I already didn't do it again"

    Re: "already" and negation?

    .
    The first one is possible: I had only been drinking for half an hour, and I already didn't feel well.

    The second one I find impossible to place in a context, and would call it non-native.
