Am I able to sue Cumberland Farms for fountain soda addiction?

Asked over 1 year ago - South Dartmouth, MA

I was employed by the company, and as an employee, I was allowed as much free fountain soda as I wanted.
I do not work there any longer.
Due to this, I have been EXTREMELY addicted to their diet coke fountain soda since then, and this has been over four years! I do not drink any other fluids besides this!
They also allow any size cup or container all for the same price. I bring my own very large cup from 7'eleven to Cumberlands to fill up at least three times a day, and I'm known well at each store from this addiction!
It's very unhealthy for me, but I am beyond hooked to this stuff due to it being provided free when I worked for them
