Minimum aperture - do you ever use f/22?

Beginners (and possibly stupid ) question:

As most lenses seem best at f/5.6 - 8 after which quality starts to deteriorate (diffraction), I'm wondering whether anyone ever goes as far as f/22 (or even f/32 on some macro lenses).

Is it ever worth using such small apertures?
