I tried using
{$IFDEF DEBUG}
...
{$ENDIF}

but it appears to get fired in the compiled exe as well.

Thanks for your help

I tried this code from the link;
unit Unit1;
{$define debug}
interface

uses
  Windows, Messages, SysUtils, Variants, Classes, Graphics, Controls, Forms,
  Dialogs, StdCtrls;

type
  TForm1 = class(TForm)
    btn1: TButton;
    procedure btn1Click(Sender: TObject);
  private
    { Private declarations }
  public
    { Public declarations }
  end;

var
  Form1: TForm1;

implementation

{$R *.dfm}


procedure TForm1.btn1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
 {$IFDEF DEBUG}
  ShowMessage('my conditional IS defined!');
  {$ELSE}
  ShowMessage('my conditional is NOT defined!');
  {$ENDIF}

  {$IFNDEF DEBUG}
  ShowMessage('My conditional is explicitly NOT defined');
  {$ENDIF}

end;

end.
