Naughty Matey!! You should ALWAYS finish a course of anti bios otherwise you stand the risk of setting up a resistance to them when you might really need them. And you should NEVER pass any drugs on to someone else even if you think they take the same.
Apart from anything else last Christmas's anti-bios could well be out of date and less effective especially if you got them from the cruise ship's medical chest as they may have been in there for ages.
