Would I get diabetes by this sugary diet I consume daily?
Half a liter of milkshake in wee hours of the morning, An omelet in breakfast, A regular chocolate bar and soda in midday, A healthy lunch, A cup of tea/coffee in the afternoon, Another 1/2L milkshake after having dinner.

BTW, I'm nearly 17 and posting this question after a really long argument with my mum. She says It would eventually cause problems with your pancreas and she won't let me have my favorite drinks.

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!
It doesn't cause diabetes directly but due to weight gain potential it may cause it in future.
Keep your weight in healthy range. Diabetes mellitus is multifactorial and just dietary intake of sugar has not been shown to increase the risk directly.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
