    'Already' used when you have finished something long ago.
    'Just' used when you have finished something minutes or seconds ago.

    E.g
    A:"Have you finished cooking the pie I told you to make?"
    B:"I have already finished it." (Or she might use 'just' replacing 'already' if she had finished it seconds ago.)

    Hope that helps.

    If you use just it means that you did a very short time before. If you use already it means you did at some time in the past without specifying when.
